About This Quiz

While it is true that the bulk of the princesses in mythical stories have been figures who rely on others to save them from some horrible situation or another, this trend has been noticeably changing in the popular culture recently. In addition to this shift in the modern sensibilities, not all legendary princesses of the past fit this description either. So, while there definitely are those princesses who must be saved by a knight in shining armor, there are others who are the ones who do the rescuing.

While you may be the kind of princess who actually does fit the more familiar role in legends, we're guessing that you might identify with a character that is a bit more complex and powerful than that. For example, perhaps you relate to the kind of princess who leads a rebellion against that which is evil and unjust in the world. In that case, there might just be a bit more of a galactic theme at work in your story. 

Similarly, maybe you consider yourself to be a warrior, someone who is athletic, strong and courageous. If you feel the call to lead your people into battle, there's a legendary female leader from Africa that might just be your perfect fit.

Regardless of the specifics, it is clear that you are royalty, and that you will represent your people with grace, style, and wisdom. Let's find out the legendary figure that reflects the core of who you are as a leader.
