The Charming Kingdom

"The Charming Kingdom is a quiet place," Smithers said. "It has many small villages on the outskirts of the kingdom and many wealthy estates in the center, near the palace."[1]


The second largest kingdom in the Land of Stories, spread across to the south. Ruled by Queen Cinderella and her husband King Chance Charming.

Its people are referred to as "Cinderellian society".[2] The Charming Kingdom is also home to the Charming brothers.


The Dragon Age

All of the Fairy Tale world is terrorized by dragons. And was in an age of chaos. Previously mentioned, The Fairy Godmother and Mother Goose wrangled dragons.

The Age of Magic

Following the Dragon age, peace is shared, the Happily Ever After Assembly is founded ,and the kingdoms are divided. Cinderella becomes Queen after finding her Prince Charming at the royal ball.

The Golden Age

After years of "living happily ever after", the Enchantress threatens to take over the Land of Stories. Roughly a year later, General Marquis and the Grande Armée arrive and attack the kingdoms. In the Charming Kingdom, its citizens join the army to fight back. When that crisis is overcome, the Masked Man attacks the kingdom.


The Wishing Spell

The Charming Kingdom is the second kingdom the twins go to while searching for the items for the Wishing Spell. They run into a Bridge Troll, try to sneak into Cinderella's castle, are discovered, meet Cinderella, and leave without taking her glass slipper. They then discover one of the slippers in their backpack. They return to the Charming Kingdom at the end of the book to attend the naming of Cinderella and Chance's daughter, Princess Hope

The Enchantress Returns

In the second part of the series, the Charming royals invite the other monarchs to an Assembly to discuss the return of the Enchantress. After the twins decide to try and build the Wand of Wonderment, they return to the Charming Kingdom to visit the Wicked Stepmother to acquire her ring. The Charming Kingdom is briefly surrendered to Ezmia in return for the King and Queen's daughter, and Ezmia stages her final coup on Charming land in her coliseum. When Ezmia is defeated, Dr. Bob and Charlotte are married on Charming Castle grounds. It is also where Lady Iris and her daughters reunite with Cinderella.

Queen Cinderella and King Chance Charming are saved by Jack, Goldilocks and their friends.
