We all know the Disney princesses: they’re beautiful, they’ve had a hard life, and, most often than not, they are full of money, so we’re going to take a look and see which care the 6 richest Disney princesses of them all.
The idea of a Disney Princess has been around for years, but it’s been only in the past couple of decades that a media franchise was actually created to encompass them all. As of 2015, there are eleven princesses, namely Snow White, Aurora, Cinderella, Belle, Jasmine, Ariel, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Merida and Rapunzel. There are, however, other Disney characters that are popular with the masses, including Frozen’s Elsa and Anna, and will probably be included among the official Disney Princesses in due time.
There are many controversies surrounding these Disney Princesses, starting with the unrealistic body images some feel they push on young girls, continuing with the fact that they always seem to have a need for someone else to fix their problems instead of doing it for themselves. After all, Cinderella could have easily gone out and worked on cleaning other people’s houses rather than slaving around for her step mother and sisters for free.
On the other hand, they continue to be extremely popular among children of all ages and adults alike. The merchandise business Disney has going on is the size of one of the castles these ladies reside in, making millions upon millions of dollars from dolls, movies, posters, costumes and so on. We’re not even going to mention how much money the parks are bringing in Walt Disney since that’s off the roof.

Back to the princesses, however, and what we care about – how rich are they really? Well, some are actually as poor as they come, but others are worth a lot of money. A while back, Yahoo finance ran an article on how much is every princess actually worth financially, based on their income. The Squander had a different approach and made an estimate of princesses’ wealth based on the approximation of their inheritance as well. We combine both lists to create the accurate ranking of 6 richest Disney princesses of them all.
