The King is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He is first mentioned in the first episode of the seventh season.

The King is based on a character of the same name from the fairytale, "Cinderella", and the Disney film Cinderella.


After Fourth Curse

This king rules over an unknown portion of the New Enchanted Forest. During an unnamed war the king took part in, Tiana's father helped end it, resulting in him being awarded the Firefly Ruby. Some years later, he causes upheaval by raising taxes to fill his coffers while the common people starve. This drastic change puts Tiana and her mother Eudora in near financial ruin as well and this causes Tiana to form the Resistance in the hopes of putting an end to his tyranny. ("Greenbacks")

Knowing the king's eldest son will be looking for a bride at an upcoming ball, Tiana plots to be there in order to overthrow the king, however, things do not go according to plan, with the prince being assassinated by Lady Tremaine, although she blames the prince's death on Cinderella. Afterwards, the king and royal family send guards to apprehend Cinderella, to no avail. In preparation for a war, the king sends weaponry to Lady Tremaine. The king's younger son Prince Gregor becomes engaged to Lady Tremaine's daughter Drizella, though he dies after Drizella kills him to blacken her own heart. ("Hyperion Heights", "The Garden of Forking Paths", "Wake Up Call")
