Who is Queen Elsa of Arendelle?
Elsa is a princess and later the queen of the kingdom of Arendelle. She is a fictional character in the Disney® movies Frozen and Frozen II. The character of Elsa is loosely based on the fairy-tale « The Snow Queen » from Andersen.
When they were children Elsa and her sister Anna discover that Elsa has magical powers. The girl can create and manipulate ice and snow into objects and even living snow monsters. The two girls have a lot of fun with this ability until an accident happens that almost kills Anna. The Goblin king rescues the girl and together with the king and queen decides that Elsa’s powers should be hidden from Anna and the world. This secret changes Elsa from a happy playful child in an introvert girl afraid of her own powers.
