* Ditto [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frida_Lyngstad Anni-Frid Princess Reuss of Plauen]], better known as Frida Lyngstad, the brunette from {{ABBA}}. Her late husband's country was absorbed into the German state of Thuringia after WorldWarOne, meaning she has no real power, but it's still a long way to go from her childhood. (She was the product of her mother's affair with a German soldier during the [[WorldWarTwo occupation of Norway]], and was raised by her grandmother to protect her from [[HumansAreBastards the abuse war children received in Norway.]])

* King Rama IV of Thailand (you know, from ''The King and I'') spent twenty-seven years in a monastery after a usurper stole his father's throne. He was a devout monk who insisted on strict observance of the Southern School Buddhist monastic rules, which included things like chastity, moderation and poverty (a Buddhist monk is permitted a small number of robes, a begging bowl, a fan and very little else.) Upon the death of the usurper he became king, and inherited a whole load of palaces, servants and concubines.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', this can potentially happen to [[spoiler: Asyura]]. Said character fits as a Cinderella, since [[spoiler: he used to be a vassal in service of the Principality of Kouga, which was destroyed by Koutarou from the Principality of Fuuma. But if he makes it to the end of the game, he rebuilds Kouga and becomes its Prince (if he doesn't marry the Female Avatar and become her NumberTwo, that is).]]
** Note, again, that there are quite a few royals that can be married off, including your own Avatar this time, who's a member of the Hoshido royal family [[spoiler: and becomes ruler of the Invisible Kingdom in the GoldenPath]], so anyone who marries Kamui, Azura, any of the royals from both the Nohr and Hoshido families, any of the other minor lords and rulers in those games, [[spoiler: Odin, aka [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Owain]]]], or their respective children, counts if they aren't already royal themselves.

* [[spoiler: Vivio]] of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' is a Sleeping Beauty, [[CloneJesus being the clone of an]] [[WarriorPrince Ancient Belkan king]]. She probably also wishes that she never found out about who she was considering [[TheyCallMeMisterTibbs how she hates being addressed as "Your Highness"]] and prefers others to just treat her as an ordinary (if exceptionally skilled) 9-year old.

* [[spoiler:Asuna]] and [[spoiler:Negi]] of ''MahouSenseiNegima'' are both Sleeping Beauty types, turning out to both be members of the royal family of the Vespertatia Kingdom in the MagicWorld. It subverts the GenreBlind guardian bit, as they were probably both safer '''before''' they started getting involved with their legacies.
