Prince Hans
HansP.png
Prince Hans of the Southern Isles is the main antagonist of the full length animated feature film Frozen. Hans is a prince from the Kingdom of the Southern Isles, a trade partner of Arendelle. Not much is known about the prince's past; however, he is the youngest of the thirteen royal siblings, and felt somewhat neglected amongst his brothers. Knowing he would never rule the throne of the Southern Isles, Hans concocted a scheme to marry into monarchy elsewhere, eventually setting his sights on the kingdom of Arendelle. Hans' plans changed after realizing how reserved the to-be queen was towards socialization, prompting the prince to instead target her lonely, less mature younger sister Anna, planning to murder Queen Elsa after their marriage, which would result in him becoming king. He was apparently willing to keep up his facade for an indefinite length of time. However when he realised that Anna would not be cured by his kiss, thereby proving to her that he didn't love her, he was just as willing to end her life and claim they had married. He then used the ongoing crisis and 'death' of Princess Anna to order the execution of Queen Elsa. He is not an Official Disney Villain due to the fact that he is a lame-ass twist villain and he is part of the Frozen franchise.
Duke of Weselton

Duke of Weselton is the secondary antagonist of the full length animated film, Frozen. What the Duke of Weselton lacks in stature, he makes up for in arrogance and showboating. He’s determined to get close to the new queen—that is, until Elsa’s magical secret is revealed. Then he’s the first to call her a monster and try to turn her own kingdom against her—anything that might help him exploit Arendelle’s tradable goods.
