I adore Tangled for many reasons, but historical accuracy isn't one of them. It's actually the first Disney film that feels entirely set in its own fantasy world, with no real ties to any particular time period or setting- unless you count that ever-forgiving time period of "Ren Faire."

Since this is the last one in the series (so far as official princesses go), I thought I'd treat myself and just have fun with it. I drew up concepts for both the 16th century (the slashed sleeves) and 18th (Keane's initial inspiration), but in the interest of choosing a time period I hadn't touched yet I ended up going with the late Regency. There are a ton of gowns circa 1820 that have those inimitably princessy sleeves, and those palace guards aren't fooling anyone.

I like Rapunzel's movie dress, but I love this one. The detailing is really nice, and I wish I could do it. Her hairstyle is also amazing!

Tangled is set in Italy, the architecture gives that away.

According to the "Art of Tangled", Corona is European, but set in no particular country. However, the original fairy tale is German, and the animators based the majority of their designs for landscapes, architecture etc. on Germany. So, I like to think that Corona is set somewhere around Germany or Poland :)

You mean like the Bavarian houses/clothing and French castle? ;)

No it's really not.  It's a complete mashup of European styles and locations.

I just assumed it was set on a tiny Island nation off the Eastern Coast of Italy. Sort of floating between Italy and Slovenia. Austria isn't too far North which could explain some of the more Germanic influences, but also easily explain the Romance architecture.
