In Shrek the Musical Farquaad says:

My momma was a princess

Who left her crown behind.

The Shrek wikia says she was Princess of Duloc, but the Mirror only said “You can be king by marrying a princess,” to Farquaad, so does that really apply to the Princess’s parents i.e. Farquaad’s maternal grandparents.

  • @Valorum That older Q&A doesn't seem to have anything to do with which kingdom his mother was a princess of.

    @Valorum If you agree that the older question has nothing to do with what this one is asking, then how is one of them a dupe?

    @Valorum The fact that you're reluctant to edit it doesn't make it a dupe though.

    @Randal'Thor - I'm reluctant to edit it because it would change the question asked.

1 Answer 1


from Shrekwiki:

In Shrek The Musical, Farquaad's past is revealed during the musical number "The Ballad of Farquaad". Farquaad's mother was revealed to be a Princess named Pea from the Princess and the Pea and his father being Grumpy (which explains his comically short stature) from Snow White. They married for love, and his mother was apparently disinherited from her crown.

As for the fairy tale, it's a short story and doesn't mention names (characters or kingdoms): The Princess and the pea

  • This addresses who his mother was, but not what she was princess of.

  • the fairy tale doesn't mention her name or any kingdom's name I'm afraid...
