History

Before First Curse

Briar Rose, having incurred Maleficent's wrath, is cursed by her into an eternal sleep before King Stefan awakens her with true love's kiss. While Maleficent falls into ruin, destroyed by her failed revenge, King Stefan and Briar Rose marry and have a daughter named Aurora. Years later, when their daughter is set to wed Prince Phillip, King Stefan seeks to get rid of Maleficent permanently to keep Aurora safe from her. Instead, Maleficent regains her lost ability to morph into a dragon and attacks the king, but the latter managed to survive. Later, the dragoness gains retribution against Briar Rose by cursing Aurora into an eternal sleep. ("Enter the Dragon")
