Princess Megara by ADQuatt Princess Megara by ADQuatt
I had this sketch in my WIP and I thought I'd try something different.

The dragon on the throne is a nod to the original myth. Her great, great grandfather was one of the Spartoi named Echion. The Spartoi were armed men who sprang from the ground after Cadmus (the founder and first king of Thebes) planted the teeth of a dragon he had just slain, into the ground. There's more to it than that, but this is lecture enough. :D

I always wondered why we never know so much about Meg's past in the film. If only the writers had given out a hint or a clue that Meg was a princess, I'd buy it.

Totally agree. They missed a huge opportunity, then again there's too much murder and incest so I can see why they tried to stay clear of it.

Thanks! I was going more for the Greek myth where her father is King Creon; however, one of the Disney Encyclopedias does acknowledge that her father is a king even though she's not in the official princess lineup.
