Queen Athena was the wife of King Triton, and the mother of Ariel and her 6 older sisters. She was the Queen of Atlantica, and was beloved by her family and her subjects. Queen Athena was noted for her singing talent and her love of music. Unfortunately, Athena died as a result of a run in with pirates when Ariel was very young. A statue of Athena dancing with Triton is present in Triton’s courtyard. She is shown to have long red hair, green eyes, and a blue-green tail. As queen, she wore a tiara similar in form to Triton’s. Ariel is said to bear a close resemblance to her.
