15 Trivia Tidbits About Princess Buttercup from 'The Princess Bride'
Princess Buttercup is the main character of William Goldman's (and later Rob Reiner's adaptation of) The Princess Bride. She starts her life taking care of horses, and goes on to become betrothed to the king of her nation -- granted, a terrible shitty king who has her kidnapped almost immediately in order to launch an attack on his enemies, treating her like some kind of sentient Two Towers.
After her rescue by the Man in Black, she doesn't really do much until she's re-rescued at the end, making her one of the first princesses in all media who is found, rescued, and then captured again before the end of the piece of media itself -- it's like instead of Toad letting you know Peach was in another castle, you found her... and Bowser just came and stole her back immediately.
