The Black Prince is the ghost of a human man.
One of the "Happy Haunts" residing in the Haunted Mansion, the Black Knight's ghost dwells in one of the Changing Portraits. Apparently a knight in life, the Prince was, seemingly, killed in battle, and now haunts the Mansion. In 2015, during the Sea Captain's occupation of the Mansion, the Black Prince sided with him, taking charge of an army of several other Changing Portraits. Despite his generally unpleasant disposition, the Prince has been known to wander out of the Mansion with a drink in his skeletal hand.
Behind the scenes Edit
The Black Prince first appeared as a part of the Haunted Mansion attraction in Disneyland, which opened in 1969.
A common interpretation of the Prince among fans is that he is intended to be the ghost of Sir Edward of Woodstock, who was referred to as the Black Prince. This, however, is unconfirmed.
