- "Handsome Prince Antonio loves travelling and exploring now lands. He's amazed by Rosella, who he finds daring, curious and unique." - Official description
While Antonio was exploring one day, he came across a new island. While exploring it, Antonio and his friend, Frazer, fell into a crocodile nest. Thankfully, the two were saved when a girl came along and told the crocodiles to leave them alone. The girl soon introduced herself as Ro, who was thrown overboard during a storm 10 years before and gained amnesia. Her only memories were of the island, and she considered the animals she met there her family. She even learned to talk to animals.
When amazed by Ro's ability to talk to animals, as well as her personality, Antonio quickly took a liking to her. Antonio asked Ro if she would like to come back to civilization with him to pay back for saving his and Frazer's lives, and she agreed. On the boat ride back to Antonio's kingdom, Apollonia, he fell in love with Ro.
Once they were back in Apollonia, Antonio introduced her to his three younger sisters Rita, Gina and Sophia. Antonio and Rosella soon found out that Antonio had been betrothed to Princess Luciana, a sweet, polite girl who was able to see that Antonio was really in love with Rosella. Meanwhile, Antonio and Luciana became good friends, but they were just not in love with each other. Despite attempts to tell his Father Peter this and the fact that he loved Ro, he wasn't able to. At a ball, Antonio danced with Rosella and asked her to stay in his kingdom with him. Rosella declined the offer, believing that he and Luciana should be together. Antonio let Rosella leave, and his father told him he had to marry Luciana in two days. Antonio was annoyed with his father pushing him into marriage and abdicated his crown if it meant that he couldn't be with Ro otherwise and wrote a letter to her asking her to sail away with him. Tika, one of Rosella's animal friends that accompanied her to Apollonia, was jealous of Rosella and Antonio's love, so she hid the letter.
When a disease starting being spread to the animals in Apollonia, Ro and her animal friends were blamed for it and got thrown in a dungeon. Infuriated, Antonio begged Peter to release Rosella, which his father agreed to if Antonio married Luciana. Antonio reluctantly agreed, and Rosella was freed, but banished from Apollonia.
Antonio's wedding got interrupted by Tika storming in and getting him to come with her. When he did, he saw Ro being restrained by a guard but Antonio was able to free her. Although Peter wanted to put her in the dungeon again, Antonio reminded him of the deal they made. Ariana, meanwhile, tried to convince them that Rosella was dangerous, but Ro revealed that she was trying to cure the animals. She also told everyone that Ariana had poisoned the animals and was planning to poison everyone at the wedding with the food. Although Ariana attempted to state otherwise, Luciana finally saw past everything and finally confirmed that what Rosella was saying was true. Ariana tried to escape after pushing Ro and Antonio down, so Rosella, Antonio and Tika went after her. Ro soon caught Ariana and she was taken away.
Luciana told Antonio that they shouldn't be married, and told him that, someday, someone would look at her the way he looks at Ro. Antonio asked Ro to marry him and, though she declined at first, she agreed after finding out Luciana would happily accept it. Antonio's father welcomed Ro into the family, and Ro told everyone her real name is Rosella. A wedding guest, Queen Marissa mentioned she had a daughter named Rosella, and she and Rosella reunited after 10 years. Soon, Rosella and Antonio got married and the happy couple sailed off into to the sunset back to the island for the honeymoon.
Antonio has light skin, blue-green eyes and brown hair tied in a ponytail and tied with a ribbon however he cuts them after arriving to Apollonia. He wears regal clothes.
Antonio is shown to be somewhat self-sacrificing; giving up his happiness and possibly freedom for Rosella to be free. Antonio is a young prince who is adventurous and unafraid to follow his heart; he asks Rosella if they could run away together as his parents disapprove of her.
