When the Beast was a human prince, an old beggar woman came to his castle requesting shelter from the bitter cold and offered to him this very rose. The prince sneered at the beautiful gift and turned the old woman away because of her haggard appearance. She warned him not to judge her based on appearance for true beauty was found within. When he did not heed her warning, she shed her false form, revealing herself to be an astonishingly beautiful enchantress. She saw that there was no love in the prince’s heart, and thus punished him by turning him into a Beast, and all who dwelt within the castle into living objects, as well as cursing the castle itself and possibly the surrounding forest. She left him the rose, promising him that it would bloom until his twenty-first year: If he could learn to love and earn love in return before the last petal fell, the spell would be broken. If he failed, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. The spirited, headstrong village girl Belle enters the Beast’s castle after he imprisons her father Maurice. With the help of his enchanted servants, including the matronly Mrs. Potts, Belle begins to draw the cold-hearted Beast out of his isolation.
The Enchanted Rose has become the trademark symbol for Beauty and the Beast.
