The Internet loves imagining Disney Princesses in other fantasy universes -- Star Wars, the Marvel Universe, Doctor Who, and, yes, Game of Thrones. But what if the beloved animated Princesses actually were on Game of Thrones?The real question isn't who they would be or what they would do in Westeros, it's "how long they would survive before getting axed by the trigger-happy George R.R. Martin?"
In honor of the Season 5 Premier, we've taken a good, hard look at the pantheon of Disney Princesses, and estimated how long they could stick it on the show before getting Ned Stark'd:

The unlikely couple share in a number of fun and wholesome adventures before she is tragically mistaken for 'another one of Tyrion's whores' and is brutally stabbed to death on the orders of the tyrannical Lannister patriarch Tywin.
