Princess Aurora (also known as Sleeping Beauty in the titular movie) is a character mentioned and briefly appears as an extra in the Disney Channel Original Movie, Descendants. She is one of the heroes who is also the mother of Audrey. She is the titular character in the original movie, Sleeping Beauty.


Princess Aurora was born to King Stephan and Queen Leah, Her birth was great joy to the king and queen as for many years they were childless. She was named Aurora because she filled her parents' heart with sunshine,

It was during her christening her parents gave a great feast and invited everyone though out the land including a small Prince Philip (Aurora's future husband) and King Hubert Philip's father and Stephan's good friend. They agreed that their children would be betrothed and in the future would be wed. Also at the feast came three fairies Flora, Fauna, and Merrywhether

She is first shown in the movie Sleeping Beauty.


Aurora is kind, elegant, shy, and sophisticated, as well as a hopeless romantic. At first, she is seen as a slightly naive and carefree young woman as a result of being sheltered for most of her life. Aurora is very loyal to her "aunts" and usually obeys their rules respectfully, although she may disagree with them. Since she was raised not to talk to strangers, Aurora was naturally startled and apprehensive when the handsome Prince Phillip appeared in the forest. However, she was drawn to him before remembering her aunts' rule about not talking to strangers. Aurora then compromised in agreeing to talk to him by arranging to meet him at her cottage, under the supervision of her aunts. In later media, she is shown to have matured and become more self-assured, independent and confident in her opinions and abilities. Though it can arguably be said that as a character, she is very difficult to pin down, due to her short appearance in the movie, at least awake, that is. She was mentioned a few times in the movie


She appears behind Audrey and Leah during the coronation of Ben.


  • We know she is 36 because she was cursed to sleep when she was sixteen years old and she was cursed around twenty years ago.
