Early life

Sofia was born in Enchancia to Birk Balthazar of Freezenberg and Miranda of Galdiz. At some point Birk was no longer with Sofia and Miranda.[3]

Miranda and Sofia lived together in Enchancia's village of Dunwiddie, where her mother worked as a shoe maker. One day Miranda was called on by King Roland II, and it was love at first sight. They quickly married, and Miranda and Sofia were to move into the castle, with Roland and his children, James and Amber.[4]


Total appearances: 104.


  • While at first it seemed Sofia was Latina, the backlash of criticism over her lack of resemblance to the real Latino community caused Disney to alter their statement, by saying that the series is just supposed to appeal to the diverse and multicultural audience, but not be explicit in their actual nationality.[3] Galdiz and Freezenberg are inspired by Spain and Scandinavia, respectively. This was later rectified by having Princess Elena as the first Disney Princess to be Latina, who appears in the spin-off, Elena of Avalor.
