This may be a daft question, but how old is she approximately (is that how it's spelt?). I'm asking because I wonder if she'd make a good couple with Peter Pan, Aladdin, Quasimodo, Hercules and Tarzan as I can hear her saying their names and them saying her name in return.

A simple google search would've found the answer, but she is supposed to be around 16 in the film. Though if you ask my opinion, I think she looks a lot older than that and could very well be in her early 20s if you wanted to portray her that way.

Mulan from the movie is based off the ancient Chinese poem about Hua Mulan, who enlisted at the age of 18 and fought for 12 years during the Northern Wei Dynasty. Marriage was common for women in their teens, so it is a good guess to say that she was around 18. Disney might not have cared for historical accuracy when it came to her age, so it might not be historically correct (meaning she could be anywhere three years younger or older than the character Hua Mulan).
