Prince John is the primary antagonist of the 1973 Disney animated movie Robin Hood. He is a lion who usurped his brother, King Richard, and became King of England (though in reality he was only a stand-in ruler, who was looking after England in the abscence of his brother - who was fighting in the Crusades). He constantly taxes the poor of Nottingham for his own benefit and has a habit of sucking his thumb when he gets upset - he is aided in his scheming by the Sheriff Of Nottingham and his man-servant Sir Hiss, who he tends to abuse regularly.
When King Richard returned from the Crusades he had Prince John and his henchmen put to work breaking rocks as punishment for Prince John's unfair treatment of the people of Nottingham.
He was voiced by the late Peter Ustinov.
