Gothel, also known as Mother Gothel, was a woman who lived for centuries through the healing powers of a magic flower. When the flower was harvested to cure the queen of Corona, Gothel set out to reclaim its power but found that the queen's daughter, Rapunzel, had inherited its magic. Determined to retain her youth and to keep the flower's magic hidden, Gothel kidnapped Rapunzel and imprisoned her within a tower for eighteen years.

Trivia Edit

  • According to character designer Jin Kin, Gothel was the most challenging character due to her duality; she had to be presented as both Rapunzel's kidnapper and mother figure.[1]
  • Gothel died when she fell out of The Tower, distraught because Flynn Rider had cut Rapunzel's Magic Hair which had kept her alive for centuries. When she fell, she turned into a pile of dust instantly, because of her great age.
