Merida is a lead character of the movie Brave. She is the 11th and the latest Disney princess, to date. Merida has many remarkable “firsts,” for a Disney princess. As she refuses to marry a man by tradition, she is the first Disney princess not to have a leading man or love interest. Her fierce independence resonates well with modern-day feminism. Merida also does not have any singing part in the movie, unlike other Disney princesses.
