Fantaghirò sees this as a chance for her to prove herself. They are married in the third film and adopt the orphaned Princess Esmeralda as their daughter. The White Witch teaches Fantaghirò how to fight like a man. I first started to watch this show 2 years ago.
She is conniving, wicked, and tries her best to keep her son away from all things good and warm. In the fourth and fifth films she constantly tries to get back at Fantaghirò so she can be powerful again. Anyway, to me, it is the best film I have ever see and will always be. In the fourth film, Stuart did not want to return again for the role, so Romualdo was transformed into the hideously ugly Fiodor, portrayed by Riccardo Serventi Longhi. In the fourth film, she confesses that she has always loved Tarabas but has had to keep her love hidden from him. Recently, the show had been repeated once more and I recorded the whole 4 series and I never get bored watching this show.
Martines, Nielsen and Rogers confirmed their availability, but the project never came to fruition due to difficulties in co-production and the costs being deemed too high for its realization. The king wanted a male heir to his throne and torn by the death of his wife, decides to sacrifice the girl and leads to the Cave of the Golden Rose to give her to the monster.

In the third film, her former minions, Bolt and Lightning, decide to resurrect her because Fantaghirò needs her help against Tarabas.
His disappointment worsens when she grows up refusing to be meek and obedient as all women in his kingdom are expected to be. Fantaghiro starts to fall in love with him, too, but her sense of duty is strong. To me, it is the most touching and loving film I have ever watch. In the first film she marries Ivaldo, she is pregnant in the second film, and by the third film she has a son. Initially Fantaghirò was to be a single film but the production costs were excessive and so it was decided to make it as a miniseries.
Romualdo eventually regains his memories thanks to Fantaghirò and the White Witch. She hates water, and cannot fly if she falls in a river. Fantaghirò, wild and fearless in contrast to her sisters Caterina and Carolina, is one big headache for her father, the King. He appears in the fourth film as the main villain who creates a black cloud that causes destruction wherever it goes. He starts to rebel against his mistress, the Black Witch, early in the second film, and it is he who instigates Bolt to do the same. . He crosses paths with Fantaghirò and falls in love with her, eventually asking her to marry him in exchange for reviving Romualdo, who has been turned into stone.
Martines gained popularity thanks to the success of Fantaghirò and voiced herself in the French version. After the death of his father, Romualdo seeks to end the centuries-long war his ancestors have waged against Fantaghirò's people by challenging Fantaghirò's father to single combat. They are due to be married early in the second film, but the ceremony is postponed when the Black Witch kidnaps Fantaghirò's father. The child is saved by the White Witch who promises her a wonderful future. However, he grows to care for Fantaghirò over the first film and accepts her as she is. Tarabas reunites with Fantaghirò to track down the source of the black cloud and discovers that it was conjured by his father, Darken. Later their paths cross again and Goldeye tries to get his revenge by making Fantaghirò dress up as a belly dancer.
She has been instrumental in protecting and guiding Fantaghirò ever since she was a baby, although the princess is not always aware of the White Witch's involvement. Esmeralda is playful and headstrong, much like Fantaghirò was in her youth. Director said the films were influenced by , and , as well as by Disney animated movies and the 1950s fantasy cinema. The Queen of the Elves tells Fantaghirò that the wizard she seeks is Tarabas. He is initially disappointed by Fantaghirò's birth, as he had been expecting a son, who would become his heir. Along the way, Fantaghirò is reunited with the wizard Tarabas, who agrees to help them on their quest, and Princess Anjelica, who is in love with Tarabas.
As Romualdo sees her dressed as a man he believes to recognize his beloved. He travels through different worlds on a flying galleon in order to become more human by feeding on children. Aside from being the source of all evil in Fantaghirò's world, he is the father of Tarabas, and wants his son to be just as evil as he is. A Fantaghiro opened in Rome in 2001. She is very forgiving and looks past physical appearances.
