What if Disney Princesses were historically accurate?

Buzzfeed Videos have put up a fabulous video featuring Disney Princesses such as Pocohontas, Briar Rose/Sleeping Beauty/Aurora, Snow White, Tiana, and Belle. With each, they feature them in historically accurate clothing (although I do feel that the ‘peasant’ clothing looked a bit rich), as well as a bit of information about the society they lived in at the time.

Quite why they have them throwing what looks like cocaine all over the place is beyond me. Even it’s meant to be chalk, it’s still beyond me.

However, this is a great video and makes me wish that that Disney would do historically accurate princesses. Would be good to see some of the Disney Princes as well.

You can see the video below.
