    Q: What was the relation between Rothbart and King William? Did they know each other outside of Rothbart's attempts to take over the kingdom?

    A:  Actually, yes! There’s a small hint at the beginning of the original 1994 movie, when Rothbart says ‘I’m not through with you yet, Willy”. As well as, King William going easy and choosing to banish Rothbart instead of executing him.  

    The Mystery of the Enchanted Treasure DVD Special Features confirms the relationship. In Princess Odette's storytime, she refers to him as her "evil uncle Rothbart". So Rothbart and King William were actually brothers!

    Odette’s Diary Entry: Indoor Festival

    Dear Diary,

    For the most part, peace has been restored to the kingdom. The illness that plagued our kingdom has gone away. Thanks to the diligence of our doctors and the patience of our villagers, until it passed. We held a festival, along with our neighboring kingdoms, Trumbeau and Borromeo. We celebrated life and honored those we had lost during this time.

    We didn’t want to risk any spread of infection so we did a social distance festival. All of our royal friends worked together to make care packages! Everyone wanted to add special items from their kingdoms to the packages. Trumbeau and Borromeo added specialty treats and decorations. Roger’s provided some new inventions he was able to mass produce just in time. I believe he called them ‘party poppers’. They shoot out confetti when you pull the string! It’s so much fun!

    Uberta always says ‘It’s not a party without some yummy snacks!’, so she packed bread, turkey breast and cheese for every single case. I add my own touch by folding the food into swan shaped packages. After all, if anyone knows the shape of a swan, it's me! Alise and Lucas handmade candles. They used tulip petals from his family’s farm to give them some extra color. Our friends, the Scullions, volunteered to weave all of the baskets. They are quite skilled in reed weaving. Puffin, Speed and Jean Bob had the task of assembling the care packages.

    You might wonder what Derek’s job was? Well, he was the one that got to leave the castle and hand-deliver them to every household. It may have sounded easy but he started early in the morning and didn’t get back until nightfall. When he returned it was a joyous time! We could see all the candlelights glowing in the windows of the village. We could hear laughter and music echoing in the streets. It was magical! Even though the circumstances were less than pleasant, I hope we can try to do this festival again next year!
