Well, that was fast. Can we call for Split now? 10:1 in favor?
I think people are assuming that Split includes disamb?
I realized Rags to Royalty exists. Ascended Princess would be a subtrope of that. Worth splitting, or is it The Same, but More Specific? This would be the Cinderella Style variant listed on the page.

It could work as a Subtrope or a sister trope, I suppose. In Rags to Royalty, the character is reinstated into the position after losing the title or gains it through marriage to a royal. Ascended Princess is for instances when the title is given willy-nilly, even when the character isn't given a kingdom to rule afterwards (like in the Dorothy example given @7 perhaps?).

I'm going with Ascended Princess being a sister trope to Rags to Royalty instead of a subtrope if the "rags" part involves being poor, because I could see Ascended Princess examples starting out rich (and possibly spoiled) to begin with.
If Tropes Are Flexible means it just involves starting out as commoner, then subtrope would make more sense.

Calling in favor of split, while converting the original into a disambiguation.
So who's spawning the TLPs? If it should be me, then wait 'til tomorrow.
I started a TLP draft for Princess Protagonist.
Started a draft for Gratuitous Princess.

On the TLP discussion for Gratuitous Princess, someone argued that the draft is the same as what Everything's Better with Princesses is supposed to be now. Thoughts?
Well, yes, but Gratuitous Princess is clearer about it, as you said in response already.

I think you covered the important stuff in your reply, but I posted my own $0.02 about how Everything's Better with Princesses is too broad and leads to Chairs examples.

How well does it match the trope?
