Now we are well into the Disney Renaissance. This week we’ve come to Jasmine, whose tale is told in the story of Aladdin.
Jasmine is the daughter of the Sultan of Agrabah, which gives her a significant amount of power herself. It means that the person she chooses to marry would eventually succeed the sultan as ruler.
It seems a bit unfair to think that Jasmine herself is not in line for the throne, only the guy she marries. Actually, that’s really unfair. Come on, Agrabah! Let’s try to rethink how this line of succession thing works in the future, okay?
Should You Date Her?
Don’t get me wrong, Jasmine’s gorgeous. And I think the name, Jasmine, is all kinds of beautiful.
But the thing with this princesses is that she will probably always question why you have chosen to be with her. Do you love her for her or do you love her for her father’s throne?
Yes, she’s adventurous and courageous. Much more so than most of the pampered princesses who rarely see beyond the palace walls.
And let’s think about her family for a moment. The sultan doesn’t exactly seem to be playing with a full deck. And he’s highly susceptible to hypnotic suggestion. Studies have shown that, in cases like these, the apple does not fall far from the tree. How long would it be before Jasmine started exhibiting signs of her own senility? That could turn into a long-term problem for Prince Ali Ababwa.
