Get ready for the arrival of a new princess on Once Upon a Time. It sounds like you won’t be disappointed by the girl power factor if that’s your thing!

(And it must be, if you’re still watching at this point.)

Once Upon a Time is introducing a new character named Helena this season, according to E! Online.

The 30-year-old, brown-haired princess is described as, “Confident and well-bred, and can wrap any man around her finger.”

And on top of being seductive and cunning, Helena is also a warrior who has “slain many deadly creatures.”

So who is she? Of course the name Helena immediately makes us think of Helen, Princess of Troy – and considering the Lancelot and Frankenstein reveals earlier this season, a bit of Greek mythology wouldn’t seem that far out for Once Upon a Time.

Another possibility is that this is the character Helena from Shakespeare’s famous play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. She could also be a character we haven’t met yet, like Jefferson’s wife or Aurora’s mother.

Helena’s first appearance is likely to be the 13th episode of season 2.

Who do you think she is? And who would be a good actress for the part? Share your thoughts in the comments or over on the Hypable forums!

    My guesses in no particular order Rapunzel, Pocahontas, Helen Of Troy, Jasmine, Eilonwy, Tiger Lilly, Megara or Merida

      well now that all the disney princesses have been named, who else could it be? 30 year old and brown hair should have narrowed it down, but it didn’t for you at all xD

    • Sarah

      If not her, I still really hope they bring in Meg. She is such a fun character.

        ah soooo great!!

        My theory is that Aurora IS Meg. Her prince has his soul sucked, her own soul keeps on going to a underworld, her dress is so much like Megs, and her castle was designed in the same style as a building from the Greek Middle Ages.

    Helena of Troy would be soooooo easy, so i think she is out, but think what princess and warrior have the men, maybe is Esmeralda from notredame, but imagine if they introduce Jessica Rabbit?

    Hello! Your missing the more famous Princess:
    Though the new princess wouldn’t be so bad. I’ll laugh!

    Are we sure this is the actual name of the character, because when we heard about the casting call for Mulan and Aurora those weren’t the names used. If this is the case I’m definitely going with Xena. She’s got brown hair, I would guess she’s in her 30′s, very confident, all the men want her. It makes perfect sense to me.

    oh please be Helen of troy!! i love her she’s awesome, it shows that not matter the age you can still act young. As she did in the Movie Helen of troy. :)
