Queen Isabella is a minor character in Barbie in The 12 Dancing Princesses. She is the late mother of the princesses, and wife of King Randolph. She was only shown in the movie as a portrait in the castle.
Isabella, like her daughters, loved to dance, and she had a dance pavilion in the castle. Her daughters, and also her husband, loved her very much, and they still do. When the girls were younger, Queen Isabella gave them all the story books. All of the books had the girl's favorite flowers (for example, a geranium for Ashlyn, a larkspur for Blair, etc.)
The story books are about a princess who loves to dance, and goes to a dance pavilion in a magical world to dance at night. After the third night, the magical world disappears, and the princess is distraught. This hinted to her daughters that the stone pattern on their bedroom floor was the gateway to the magical world from the story, where the girls could dance and get away from their problems.
Duchess Rowena, who wanted to make the girls into "proper princesses" upset the girls by making them change who they were. She also tried to steal the Queen's silver goblet. After the trouble she caused, Genevieve used magic to make Rowena and her crony Desmond dance forever.
The Queen still helped the girls, even after her death, because of something she used to tell them: "There's a difference only you can make."
She didn't want her girls to change who they were, and she told her husband that their children would do great things in their own special way.
Isabella was very passionate about dancing; she made it a family tradition and her favorite story featured a dancing princess.
Queen Isabella has dark brown hair and dark blue eyes. From all daughters, Ashlyn resembles her the most (even her hairstyle and dress color are similar). The Queen's dress, in which she's shown on the portrait, is similar with dancing princesses' dresses, with a flower on the middle of bodice of her dress. She wears a necklace and a golden crown.
- She shares the name with Queen Isabella from Barbie: Princess Charm School, who's also a deceased character and mother of the main character whose adopted name is Blair.
