What Disney princesses have mothers?

I is hard to say. often family relationships are not important to cartoon plots- such as such indepedent operators as Wally Gator, Mickey Mouse, etc. but with human characters it does seem the motherless child angle is a permanent set with the Disney stable. Pocahontas has no mom, Neither does Ariel , how they got that way is never specified- probably mother died in childbirth- a very un-kid friendly topic. It is an established pattern with Disney. One exception is the recent Hathaway film which has Julie Andrews as the Queen Mother- and her daughter Miss Hathaway. Country seems to be a take=off on Italy- now a republic. ( it is called Genova in the film). That"s one exception.
