Was Dr. Facilier a prince? Or was he just kidding around?
If you're a member of this fansite then you're most likely a member of the Lion King Source, Balto source, and All Dogs go to Heaven Source. You'll find at least one article in each site about one character is related to another or who the fans think their parents are. So, in a way, this site wouldn't be complete without one either. I'm just glad that I happened to catch this before anyone else.
Anyways, we are all aware of the strange sense of humor the Shadow Man seems to carry. However, in this one particular line in Friends on the Other Side, he says this:
Now you, young man, are from across the sea
you come from two long lines of royalty
*-I'm a royal myself on my mother's side-*
Your lifestyle's high
but your funds are low...
As he says "I'm a royal myself on my mother's side" he shows the audience a shrunken head with a crown on it. Was that really his mother? I don't find the humor in it, but if he was serious, then that means that Facilier was a prince or something royal at least. He could very well be the prince of witch docters, this would explain why he was so well known in New Orleans, Tiana seemed to know who he was, Mama Odie seemed to know who he was, and I think even Louis knew who he was (correct me if I'm wrong). Now if a crocodile knows who you are then jeez, you must be pretty famous. It's just a suggestion though, because you don't have to be royal to be famous.
