King Raul Castillo and Queen Lucia Flores are minor characters in the animated series, Elena of Avalor. They are the parents of princesses Elena and Isabel, and the former rulers of Avalor. Queen Lucia was the bearer of the Amulet of Avalor before Elena and King Raul was the bearer of the Scepter of Light before Elena.


Elena's parents were the rulers of Avalor before Elena. By Elena's fifteenth birthday, her mother Lucia gave her the Amulet of Avalor saying that it would always protect her. A year later, Lucia and King Raul were on their way home to the palace while being chased by the evil, power-hungry sorceress Shuriki in the process. Lucia and Raul were murdered by Shuriki when they returned to the palace, with Elena witnessing their murder before Shuriki went after her to remove any witnesses to her usurping the throne. Elena avenges her parents' murder when she destroys Shuriki's wand and frees Avalor from her tyranny with the support of her remaining family, the Royal Family of Enchancia, and the citizens of Avalor City. Though Shuriki escapes, her threat over Avalor was gone, and Elena's parents would know peace in the afterlife.

In the episode "A Day to Remember", Elena and Isabel remembered the good times they had with their parents before they died. Isabel missed them so much that she didn't want to go to the Dia de los Muertos party until Elena told her the reason she herself enjoyed this day. At the end of the episode, thanks to Elena's ability to see ghosts, she was able to see Raul and Lucia's ghosts.

In "The Princess Knight", it is revealed that Lucia was the best fencer in all of Avalor and almost won the Swordsman Tournament Cup, only to have her opponent, Lord Elrod, cheat by breaking her wrist, and as a result of that injury, she forfeited. Several years later, after learning the truth, Elena righted that wrong when she defeated Elrod's son and dedicated the win in her mother's honor.



  • King Raul is held in high esteem by his eldest daughter Princess Elena.
  • Raul's father was King of Avalor before him.
  • According to Craig Gerber, Esteban's mother was Lucia's sister.
