Shrek's father is the father of Shrek, the father-in-law of Princess Fiona, and their children's paternal grandfather.


Shrek the Musical

Shrek lived with his parents until his 7th birthday. Although they didn't want him to go, they had to follow the "ogre rules". They also told him that he will be lonely for his whole life and nobody will like him.

Shrek the Third

He was mentioned by Shrek, stating that Arthur had a far better dad as Shrek's parents allegedly wanted to eat him by bathing him in barbecue sauce and making him sleep with an apple in his mouth. Their relationship caused Shrek to fear fatherhood and caused him to panic when he discovered he would become a dad himself. His fate is unknown as Shrek never speaks of him any other time and he is never seen meeting his daughter-in-law or his grand kids so it can be assumed he is either dead or Shrek never spoke to him again.
