2001. One of the first three Princess of the World Series. Retired. Princess of the French Court Barbie doll is inspired by the grandeur of the Age of Chivalry, a time of romance and valor. She wears a regal gown of deep, rich purple, the color of royalty. The split skirt is designed with an inset of purple and golden jacquard. Lavishly embellished with golden trim and a gleaming golden medallion, the dress is complemented by a golden ring and earrings. The final crowning touch is her golden tiara incorporating a fleur-de-lis (lily) design, the symbol of the royal family of France that proudly decorated their coat of arms.
