Here is Princess Eilonwy, another princess to keep you girls company and a princess you can read about and play with as well!

Princess Eilonwy is the main character in 'The Chronicles of Prydain', a series of five children's fantasy novels written by American author Lloyd Alexander. The five fantasy novels are known in the children's literature under the titles: 'The Book of Three', 'The Black Cauldron', which has an animated film made after it as well, 'The Castle of Llyr', 'Taran Wanderer' and 'The High King'.

A princess by birth, Eilonwy is the wife of High King Taran, she is of Welsh origin and she is the daughter of Angharad, daughter of Regat, daughter of the Royal House of Llyr, in reference to her mother and grandmother respectively, who are enchantresses. Eilonwy has inherited their magical powers, which can be seen in her manipulation of a magical bauble, a small golden sphere that can glow with magical light when activated by her willpower. Her father is a commoner, however.

Princess Eilonwy is young, brave, beautiful, heroic and headstrong. She is fair-skinned, with bright blue eyes and long blond or red hair. She wears a black band on the back of her hair, a black, red and pink dress with white sleeves and petticoat, and black shoes. Although she is trained as a sorceress, she is quite a warrior as well, being capable of using various kinds of weapons, particularly the sword, the bow and the spear. In the novels Eilonwy has a habit of running around barefoot.

Though Eilonwy is a princess, she is not considered an official Disney Princess. If she were to join the other Disney Princesses, she would be the youngest of them instead of Snow White, who is now the youngest of the fabulous group. Eilonwy looks similar to Princess Aurora (whom you can read about in a previous article) in that they both have long blonde hair.
