–King Harold

King Harold was the king of Far Far Away, although he was not born into the true royal family of Far Far Away. He was also the husband of Queen Lillian. He still maintained the title of King through his marriage with Queen Lillian and his horrible secret that he used to be a frog was hidden. King Harold was best described as stubborn and unwilling to change.

At first, he highly opposed the marriage of Shrek and his daughter Princess Fiona. He even went as far as employing an assassin (Puss in Boots) to murder Shrek, to allow the handsome Prince Charming to take throne next to Fiona. This was most likely done because Harold doubted Shrek's love for Fiona. Eventually, Harold gives Shrek and Fiona his blessing at the ending of Shrek 2. His storyline is very similar to that of the frog prince, except it is only a reverse story (initially a frog who turned human). This is also similar to Shrek's character, a non-human species that falls in love with a female human. Donkey makes a reference to this in the end of Shrek 2 whenHarold has turned back into a frog from the Fairy Godmother's wand by saying, "...And he gave Shrek a hard time..."

History

Harold was never actually a human. He was a frog who lived in a pond. One day, he met up with the fairy godmother, who allowed him to pursue his dream of marrying and loving Lillian, by making him human. Their first date was in the night and their first kiss made him human. After the death of Lillian's father, he became the king. His true identity was never discovered until his last months on the throne as ruler. Even when his true identity was discovered he was still loved by his people and family, greatly. He and Lillian are the mysterious princess and the frog.

At the beginning of the film, Harold doesn't like Shrek too much and is against the idea of Fiona marrying him. He and Shrek argue at the dinning table during a feast to celebrate the return of Fiona thus, destroying the feast.

In the night, he was taken in the Fairy Godmother's carriage where she told him that he must have Shrek killed so her son Prince Charming can marry Fiona become the king.

Later on, Harold reluctantly goes to the Poison Apple and hires Puss in Boots to assassinate Shrek.

Harold was happy that his daughter is human again and that she thinks that Charming is her husband, but he was also sad because Fiona was sad. Harold was ordered by the Fairy Godmother to put a magical love potion into Fiona's tea so she can kiss Charming and love him. But, Harold swapped the tea with Fiona and he drank the potion which enraged the Fairy Godmother. The Fairy Godmother tried to cast a spell on Shrek (which most likely causes a human being to reverse with the initial form, as Shrek is a human at the time), but Harold dived in front of Shrek, saving Shrek, turning Harold back into a frog.

Shrek the Third

King Harold sadly dies of sickness so Shrek becomes the new king of Far Far Away. Then the King was dying and so he called Queen Lillian, Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, and Puss to his room. The King almost died twice, but he was told that if Shrek doesn't want to be king, then he must find his nephew Arthur Pendragon. King Harold then passes away and is buried in a foot locker box. He was then sent away in the pond.

Shrek Forever After

There is a flashback about how Rumpelstiltskin was close into getting King Harold to sign a Magical Contract, however, just as the king and queen were about to sign it, he was told that Fiona was rescued. In an alternative universe, Harold signed it, and he and Lillian disappeared. But then at the end of the movie, however, the king was dead. Later, during the Ogre Triplets' party (the end-credits scenes), King Harold appears shown in a self-portrait (in the picture, he makes various expressions including a smile); proving he still remains, this time as a spirit.

King Harold & Queen Lillian

King Harold loves his wife dearly and thinks she deserves the best you can get. The queen is seen looking incredibly sad at the funeral in Shrek the Third. Everyone in Far Far Away is sad when Harold dies but in time, everyone moveson and accepts it. It is believed that the queen becomes quite shy when the king dies but is fine as time passes.
