Apparently, Disney lists Mulan as an "official princess" in their Princess franchise. She occasionally appears on princess merchandise, is sometimes present the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall for the Princess Storybook Dining, and appears on the mural in the princess room of the World of Disney store. In the movie, Mulan comes from a rural family. She goes off to war in her fathers place to save his life, helps defeat Shan Yu, and is praised by the emperor of China. It is hinted at that she later marries Shang, but he is an army captain, not a prince. Mulan is not of royal descent and she doesn't marry into royality. Why does Disney include her as an "official princess?"
