This list of Disney princes includes all the prince names in chronological order of the movies in which they appeared, from Snow White to Rapunzel, as well as a little information about each prince. If you've been having trouble remembering all the Disney Prince names, this list will help you keep them all in order.

List of Disney Princes in Chronological Order - Disney prince names and information

Who was the first Disney prince? Who provided the voice for each prince? And which one never married his prince in the original movie or a sequel? This list of Disney princes names them all and provides a little bit of information about these leading animated men.

  1. The Prince

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs can claim many firsts - the first full length cel animated feature ever, the first animated feature film produced in the US, the first animated feature film created in full color, and the first to be produced by Walt Disney Productions.

    It was also the first time Disney had animated a "realistic" man rather than cartoon characters, and he proved to be a challenge for the animators. As a result, The Prince, who was never given a full name, only appeared twice in the movie.

    In his first appearance near the beginning of the movie, he is riding his horse near the castle when he hears Snow White singing and joins in. She runs off, but he continues to sing, as he has already fallen in love with her. He doesn't appear again in the movie until he returns to awake Snow White from her spell with a kiss.

    Harry Stockwell was the speaking and singing voice of The Prince.

  2. Prince Charming

    Cinderella (1950)

    Prince Charming is the handsome young prince whose father wants him to choose a bride at the ball held in his honor. The prince is not at all interested in the idea until he sees Cinderella, with whom he falls instantly in love. The two dance the night away until she is forced to flee at midnight before her Fairy Godmother's magic spell wears off and her beautiful ball gown again becomes a tattered mess. She loses one of her glass slippers, however, enabling the prince to find her later. They marry and live happily ever after.

    In Cinderella, William Phipps was the speaking voice of Prince Charming and Mike Douglas was the singing voice.

  3. Prince Philip

    Sleeping Beauty (1959)

    Like The Prince in Snow White, Prince Phillip is led to Princess Aurora when he hears her singing, and he falls madly in love. He determines not to marry the girl his father has chosen and to wed this beautiful maiden instead.

    But unbeknownst to him, this "peasant girl" is actually Princess Aurora, to whom he is betrothed. She has been living in the woods for many years with three good fairies who are protecting her from an evil curse. Unfortunately, the curse comes true and Princess Aurora falls into a deep sleep. With the fairies' help, Prince Phillip battles the evil Maleficent and wakes Sleeping Beauty with true love's kiss.

    Bill Shirley was the speaking and singing voice of Prince Phillip in Cinderella.

  4. Prince Eric

    The Little Mermaid (1989)

    Prince Eric was the third Disney prince to fall madly in love with a princess after hearing her sing, but he was the first one who didn't sing himself and the first to be saved by his future bride. She saves him from drowning early in the movie, and then sings to him before he becomes fully conscious.

    The Little Mermaid is already hopelessly in love with the handsome prince at this point. As a result, she makes a deal with Ursula the sea witch to turn her mermaid tale into legs so she can return to him and attempt to earn his love. Ursula, however, tries to prevent the romance by turning herself into a beautiful young girl named Vanessa and casting a spell on Eric.

    The spell is broken just before the two wed, and Ursula resumes her form as a sea witch and attempts to kill them. Prince Eric manages to kill her, and Ariel becomes a real human and marries Prince Eric.

    Christopher Daniel Barnes was the voice of Prince Eric.

  5. Prince Adam ("The Beast")

    Beauty and the Beast (1991)

    Prince Adam is better known as"The Beast." In Beauty and the Beast, a witch turns the young prince into an ugly beast to reflect his own behavior. The only way to regain his true form is to find love before the petals on an enchanted rose all die and fall off. He is running out of time when Belle allows herself to be imprisoned in the Beast's castle in exchange for her father's freedom.

    The two begin to fall in love.

    When Belle's father becomes very ill, however, the Beast releases her so she can be with the dying man. But when a town mob marches on the castle to kill the Beast, Belle returns. She arrives just after the Beast has been dealt a fatal blow and appears to die, but her love saves him and he is revived in his human form.

    Actor Robby Benson was the speaking and singing voice of Prince Adam.

  6. Aladdin

    Aladdin (1992)

    Aladdin is the main character of the movie by the same name. He is a "street rat" who finds a genie in a magic lamp and uses one of his three wishes to become a prince and try to win Princess Jasmine's hand and heart. Under the law of the land, the princess can only marry a prince.

    Aladdin's plan is working until the evil sorcerer Jafar steals the lamp, gains control of the genie, and banishes Aladdin. But Aladdin is able to return and outwit the sorcerer to save the kingdom. Thereafter, Jasmine's father the sultan declares that the princess may marry "whoever she deems worthy."

    Scott Weinger was the original speaking voice for Aladdin, and Brad Kane was the singing voice.

  7. Captain John Smith

    Pocahontas (1995)

    Captain John Smith is the only character in the list of Disney Princes that wasn't a prince by virtue of birth or marriage (including marriages in sequels). He is included in the lineup because he is the love interest of Disney Princess Pocahontas in the original Pocahontas movie.

    Captain Smith meets Pocahontas when he's out exploring the new world he and his shipmates have come to conquer. Unlike many other Disney movies, there's not an immediate attraction between the two, as Pocahontas is offended when John refers to the Native Americans as "savages."

    Eventually, however, John falls in love with Pocahontas and comes to respect her people and their lifestyle. She is also falling in love with him, even though she is engaged to be married to another man chosen by her father. When Pocahontas' finance is killed, John is scheduled to be executed for the crime. Pocahontas saves him, but not before he is injured. He must return to England for medical treatment, leaving Pocahontas behind.

    In a direct-to-video sequel Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World, Pocahontas falls in love with John Rolfe, as the real Pocahontas did in real life, but Disney still considers Captain John Smith to be her love interest and a member of the Disney prince lineup.

    Captain John Smith was voiced by Mel Gibson in Pocahontas.

  8. Captain Li Shang

    Mulan (1998)

    Captain Li Shang is the second male in the Disney Princes who is not actually a prince. He is a captain in the Chinese army and Mulan's love-interest. They meet when Mulan, disguised as a young man, takes her father's place in the army and shows up for training. Shang is her captain. He and Mulan (who has taken the male name Ping) don't get along too well until she saves his life and they become friends.

    But when he finds out she's really a woman, he shuns her until the two must fight again to save the kingdom. At the end of the movie, he takes a new interest in her as a woman. They were married in the direct-to-video sequel Mulan II.

    In the original Mulan movie, BD Wong was Li Shang's speaking voice and Donnie Osmond was his singing voice.

  9. Prince Naveen

    The Princess and the Frog (2009)

    Prince Naveen is the first Disney prince who starts out with somewhat dubious credentials. He's a playboy who has been cut off from his royal parents, and he's looking for a rich girl to marry so he can continue his posh, lazy lifestyle. He encounters a voodoo witch doctor who promises to help make his dreams come true. Instead, he turns Naveen into a frog and gives his valet Lawrence a magic charm that makes the plump valet look like the handsome prince.

    Naveen runs into Tiana and convinces her that she can turn him into a prince again by kissing him, but when she does, she also becomes a frog. The two then go on a journey to find a voodoo priestess who can turn them into humans again. Along the way, they fall in love.

    The voodoo priestess tells them the only way to break the spell is for Naveen to kiss a princess, but the only "princess" in New Orleans is Tiana's friend Charlotte, who is princess for a day for Mardi Gras. Unfortunately, the kiss doesn't work.

    Tiana and Naveen resign themselves to living as frogs, and they get married. Ironically, they turn into humans again when they kiss at the wedding because marrying Naveen turned Tiana into a princess, so she was able to break the spell.

    Bruno Campos was the speaking and singing voice of Prince Naveen.

  10. Flynn Rider

    Tangled (2010)

    Flynn Rider's real name is Eugene Fitzherbert, but he didn't think that name was appropriate for the swashbuckler he wanted to be. So he took the name of a character from a book he used to read to other kids in the orphanage where he grew up. But unlike the good hero of the book, Flynn becomes a notorious thief.

    When he steals a crown, double-crosses his partners and tries to take refuge in a tower in the woods, he is captured by Rapunzel, who hides the gold crown and uses it as leverage to convince Flynn to escort her out of the tower to see the annual Floating Lantern ceremony. She promises to return it after the event if he helps her. The two escape her prison and head out for the event. Along the way, Flynn begins to fall in love. He decides to return the crown to his partners in crime so he can stop running and be with Rapunzel, but the plan goes awry and he ends up in jail. Rapunzel then returns to the tower with the evil Mother Gothel. Flynn escapes and goes to save her, but in the end, Rapunzel and Flynn save each other, with Flynn chopping off Rapunzel's beautiful magic hair to free her of Mother Gothel and Rapunzel healing his fatal wound with a magic tear. They are married shortly thereafter.

    Zachary Levi was the original speaking and singing voice for Flynn.
