Jurgen: Hans! More wood on the fire! It's freezing.
Hans: I'm busy. Do it yourself.
Jurgen: Now is that any way to treat your big brother? Maybe I'll throw you on instead.

Prince Jurgen is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He débuts in the third episode of the fourth season and is portrayed by co-star Marcus Rosner.

Jurgen is based on one of Hans' twelve brothers from the Disney film, Frozen.


Before First Curse

After discovering the location of a magical urn capable of trapping a magic user, Jurgen, Franz, Hans and his ten other brothers partake on a mission to a cave in a bid to find the urn. Along the way, the brothers set up camp in the North Valley. After settling, Jurgen orders his younger brother to place more wood on the fire, to which Hans refuses. The pair continues to bicker which causes Jurgen and Han's eleven older brothers to laugh at his expense. After finding the location of the urn, Hans smugly releases the contents–and to the surprise of Jurgen and the others, a white liquid pours out before a blonde woman materializes from it. The blonde attacks Jurgen and Franz and traps them behind spikes of ice, rendering them powerless as she freezes their younger brother. ("Rocky Road")

After Elsa becomes trapped in the urn by a spell induced Anna, Ingrid–the woman who was once imprisoned in the urn, sets off an eternal winter in Arendelle, causing Jurgan and the rest of citizens to become ice statues. ("Smash the Mirror")

After Second Curse

Thirty years later, Arendelle unfreezes, and Jurgen is freed from ice imprisonment. After Hans declares himself the new ruler of the kingdom, Jurgen and his brothers attempt to arrest Anna and Kristoff, but the pair fight back. Anna takes Jurgen sword and presses the blade to his throat before Hans is forced to retreat.

After figuring out Anna and Kristoff's plan, Hans is able to devise a plan with the infamous pirate Black Beard, which results in the capture of the pair on the Jolly Roger. As Hans sentences them to death, Jurgen presses his sword against Anna's neck, keeping her immobilized before he forces her into a chest. ("Fall")

Hans is able to take over the kingdom briefly, but after the return of the rightful queen, Jurgen along with his brothers are dethroned. It is not known what happens to Jurgen after this; whether he is imprisoned or sent home. ("Heroes and Villains")
