Here is another Frozen theory I came across. Personally, I think it makes some sense!. What are your thoughts?. Please comment below.
We all know that Prince Hans's turn to the darkside was sudden and largely unexpected. Whether that was because he truly was a wicked mastermind, neglected as a child or perhaps turned evil under the manipulative spell of the trolls is all debatable.
What if he was actually forced to travel to the kingdom of Arendelle by his family to ascend the throne, and all of the Arendelle advisors and staff were in on it?.
How was he able to gain so much power so quickly?!.
As Redditor Cheeseanonioncrisps points out, one of the strangest things about Disney's Frozen is that Hans is able to take full control of Arendelle in relatively no time. He goes from simply visiting the Kingdom to taking it over, throwing Elsa in prison, telling everyone Anna is dead and attempting to kill Elsa all within a shockingly short amount of time.
Princess Anna giving Hans the power to rule Arendelle wasn't actually binding!. While Anna may have left Hans "in charge" of the kingdom in her absence, there's actually a problem here!. Firstly, she wasn't of age. Secondly, she was never in charge to begin with, and therefore is actually entirely unable able to transfer the power she didn't have to Hans.
When this all happens, no one raises an objection to Hans's quick ascension as ruler of Arendelle and that's because all of Arendelle's advisors were plotting to give Hans the throne anyway!.
Consider this. If the plan to give Hans the throne was not an inside job, how did he manage to get away with the following:
1. Gaining unlimited powers immediately.
2. Inspiring no backup plan for if Anna or Elsa returned to the Kingdom.
3. Being able to arrest Elsa.
4. Telling the advisors, and the staff of Arendelle that Anna has died, with none of them actually going to check on her body.
Here's why the advisors wanted Hans to take the throne.
Due to the fact that Elsa's parents died three years before she was able to become Queen, coupled with the fact that she has a terrible habit of turning everything around her into ice, has lived in near total isolation since she was a child and, likewise, Anna has been condemned to grow up within the confines of the castle — it's safe to say that neither of the sisters know very much about ruling.
Consequently, the advisors that have been ruling the kingdom between the time of Anna and Elsa's parents death, and Elsa's coronation, started looking for alternative options for the future of Arendelle, and they found the answer in Hans. And his family was in on it too!.
That's not all. Not only were Elsa and Anna's advisors plotting against them, but Hans was actually being groomed for this plot since his birth. This becomes clearer after you take the following into account:
His full name is "Prince Hans of the Southern Isles." Note that it is "Isles" plural, indicating that his family actually own a great deal of territory and therefore know a great deal about acquiring new land and colonizing it.
Hans is surprisingly great a ruling considering he's never done it before. Since taking over Arendelle, he manages to get the whole kingdom organized even though he's the 13th in line — why would his parents spend time teaching him how to rule if it wasn't part of an elaborate plan for him to gain great power in the future?.
The advisors immediately support him. Just think about that moment the Duke of Weaseltown begins an argument with him, and the Arendelle guards immediately shelter him with their spears.
The evidence here is pretty compelling!. People argue that Hans wasn't really that bad of a guy, but considering the evidence here, and the fact that he left Princess Anna for dead, and attempted to assassinate the Queen of Arendelle, by means of beheading her, in my opinion, it's safe to say he is definitely not a nice guy, and NOT someone I'd want as a King!.
He is untrustworthy, he is sneaky, his motive was treasonous!, and he was willing to take the throne by any means necessary, including murder!. Sounds like the makings of a tyrannical government to me!.
Personally, I feel he got off being punished pretty lucky as well!. Queen Elsa booted him out of her kingdom, when in reality he should of been facing the gallows!. His crimes basically went un-punished.
If this theory is true, the advisors and staff of the kingdom of Arendelle should also be facing punishment as well for their acts of treason against the crown!.
What are your guys thoughts?. I'd love to hear. Please comment below.
