PROLOGUE

THE SETTING:

The Realm of Arendelle. Southern Norway. Summer 1840 AD.

Two days after the Great Thaw, life returns to normal...

Except all the guests of the Coronation have met the new, young Queen Elsa. And they all know about her powers. Most have congratulated her in defeating her inner struggles while overcoming the external problems posed by Weselton and the Southern Isles.

Still...as dozens of ships depart the picturesque fjords of Arendelle to return home, word of mouth spreads to all the corners of the globe.

A new monarch sits on the throne in a kingdom far away.

She is young.

She is beautiful.

She is... The Snow Queen.

AUTHORS NOTES:

Disney's timeframe for Frozen is the mid 19th century. There is not an exact date listed on any of the global Disney sites but the most common figure I keep seeing is 1840 AD. At this point in history, the 'petty kingdoms' in Norway have all but disappeared, and Norway was ruled by the Swedish King Charles III John (as he is known in Norway). Up until his death in 1844, Norway and most of Europe (except France) shared common bloodlines which lasted until the end of the First World War.

PS. Frozen is a trademark of Walt et. al.
