The Magic Golden Flower is a magical flower that first appeared in the animated film, Tangled and makes a reprise in Tangled: The Series.

Background

This flower has the ability to heal and supply youth to people of Corona, with this having a major link to Rapunzel's hair and the black rocks in the television series. A long time ago, a single drop of sunlight fell from the heavens, and from this single drop of sun grew the golden flower. It had the ability to heal any sickness or injuries, even mortal wounds, as demonstrated by Rapunzel, delay aging, as demonstrated by Gothel, though that ability requires constant use of the power.

One day, Mother Gothel discovered the flower and chose to hoard its healing power for herself. She used it to keep herself young for hundreds of years, and all she had to do was sing a special song. It appears that when the song is sung, the flower releases pollen which is breathed in. Even though Mother Gothel had hidden the flower, other people knew of its existence, suggesting that this flower was not the first of its kind.

The golden flower has been considered as the most powerful object in "the Seven Kingdoms" according to Corona's history. In the years after the flower was picked, the spot where the flower grows became a sacred and forbidden site, with a small pedestal in its place and large, indestructible thorn-like rocks surrounding it. Like the flower before them, these rocks have magical properties, as demonstrated when Rapunzel touches one of them and resulted in her previously long, magical golden locks to regrow, and in this case, inheriting the rocks' indestructibility. According to an old scroll, the rocks appeared to be formed from drops of moonlight, similar to the drop of sunlight that created the flower. More importantly, the rocks and the flower are connected together, but for what purpose remains unknown for now.

In The Alchemist Returns, it is revealed that the flower still

existed but was faded, and it had been kept locked away in Corona Castle's heavily-guarded vault, by orders of King Frederic. Varian, an alchemist looking to use the flower's legendary properties for his own agenda, manipulated Rapunzel into breaking into the flower's chamber. After stealing it, he used one of the flower's petals for an experiment, and discovered that its magic had long dissipated. In anger, he crushed what remained of the flower into powder.

In Secret of the Sun Drop, after Varian abducts Queen Arianna, Frederic confesses to Rapunzel that on the night of her birth, he was warned by Quirin that removing the flower from its resting place would reap unimaginable consequences and awake a darkness, resulting in the growth of the Black Rocks.
