The Tomboy Princess Phenom

This blog post on tvtropes.com about the tomboy-princess hybrid describes this type of character as she appears in anime and video games, among other places. Check out the links at the bottom the post for examples taken from various media as well as from "real life" (Elizabeth II!).

The "Literature" link leaves out one of my (and my daughter's) all-time favorite tomboy-princesses, The Paper Bag Princess

Now wishing there was a term for "tomboy" that didn't include the Adam's Rib-ish "boy." But "tomgirl" doesn't seem likely to supersede it. Let's work on this!
