If your child is a Disney die-hard then it would be better if they don't know the truth and continue enjoying the stories. You might find some of the stories behind these princesses quite interesting.
Here are the real stories behind 9 Disney princesses that you will find quite intriguing.
1. The witch expels Rapunzel and blinds the prince.
The brothers Grimm were the original writers of the story of Rapunzel. In their version, when the witch finds out about Rapunzel and the prince, she cuts off Rapunzel’s hair and dangles it out the window. When the prince is confronted by her, he jumps out of the window and is blinded when he lands on thorns. He eventually finds Rapunzel, and she heals him with her tears.
Interestingly, in the first version of the tale, Rapunzel is the one who foolishly gives the prince away by admitting to the witch that her clothes are getting too tight for her around her waist (indicating pregnancy). Did you ever think that Rapunzel might have been pregnant by the prince? Very different from the Disney version.
