Grand Duke

Grand Duke from Cinderella


Grand Duke is a supporting character in the 1950 feature film Cinderella and his two sequels: Cinderella II: Dreams Come True and five years later Cinderella III: A Twist in Time. He is voiced by Luis van Rooten. The Grand Duke is the personal adviser of the king, and Prince Charming, and is tasked with keeping peace within the castle the kingdom. He presents himself as dignified and intelligent, basing his point of views in realism and logic, a direct foil to the King who, in comparison, is very over-the-top and tends to act on romanticized fantasies. Often harried and forced into performing demeaning tasks, the Grand Duke can be fairly short-tempered, and often disapproves of the actions made by The King, though he continues to abide to said actions each time out of fear, which almost questions his loyalty. He also tries his best to act as a voice of reason to the, often times, overly-stressed King, and appears to be viewed as a confidante by his majesty as a result of this.
