Villain Overview

I've taken care of you since you were a baby and this is how you thank me?
~ Gothel to Rapunzel.
After all I've done, after all I've given you this is how you repay me! By sneaking off.
~ Gothel threatening Rapunzel.
I'm the one who's going to teach you not to meddle with my plans!
~ Gothel to Stefan.
She would've been my daughter if you had married me! I simply took what was mine.
~ Gothel to Wilhelm.

Madame Gothel, also simply known as Gothel, is the main antagonist from the 2002 direct-to-DVD animated Barbie film, Barbie as Rapunzel. She’s a witch who kidnapped Rapunzel as an infant and forced her to work as a scullery maid within her mansion while keeping her imprisoned and orchestrating a war between the kingdoms of King Frederick and King Wilhelm.

Gothel was voiced by Anjelica Huston.

Background

Physical Appearance

Gothel is an elderly woman with gray hair pulled into a bun, a long angular eyes, green eyes, light brown eyeshadow and magenta lipstick. Her outfits mostly consist red and dark green colors.

Personality

Powers and abilities

Gothel is strongly skilled in dark magic where she was able to create a magic wall to keep her mansion invisible so no one would find her or Rapunzel. She was able to cast enchantments and absorb her magic when it was redirected back to her, such as when Prince Stefan used a mirror to redirect a blast from Gothel, only for her to catch it. Gothel was able to cast lightning which she could use to kill her enemies.

Trivia

  • Gothel was the first main antagonist in a Barbie movie to be a female and human.
  • In the original fairytale, Gothel didn’t have any magical powers, but was still considered a witch.
    • Also, in the original story, Gothel kidnapped Rapunzel after making a deal with her father to allow him give his wife some of her vegetables from her garden in exchange for giving Rapunzel to her. In the Barbie version, Gothel kidnapped Rapunzel out of spite for her father not returning her romantic affections towards her.
  • Gothel is similar to Lady Tremaine from Cinderella. Both characters have gray hair, they own pets that try to eat the main protagonist’s animal friends and they make the main characters do chores.
