The Disney Princesses as a collective group were unveiled in early 2001. Every few years, another one has been added, with the official count at ten -- Cinderella, Ariel, Aurora, Snow White, Belle, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel, Merida, and Jasmine.
Despite the name, princesses aren't required to necessary be royal or related to royalty -- Mulan for one. Princesses are supposed to embody all the best in girls -- they are intelligent, kind and beautiful. Princesses also have lovely singing voices and can talk to animals. While the princesses have appeared together in various DVDs and other Disney events -- parades, ice shows, etc. -- they have never appeared together in a full-length motion picture, although each stars in her own.
