S2E15 Queen Butterfly and her family listen to River

Queen Moon Butterfly and her family in "Game of Flags".

The Butterfly family is a Mewman family of royals that are native to Mewni.

History

While it is unknown when this began, a family tradition was established which stated that when the newest heir to the throne turns fourteen years old, they would get a magical wand that has the capacity to destroy the universe if it fell into the wrong hands. The family lineage seems predominantly comprised of females. While male Butterflys do exist, they are noticeably in fewer numbers.

Several members of the Butterfly family have marks on their cheeks (referred to in Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension as "cheek emblems"): Star has hearts, Queen Butterfly has diamonds, Etheria has five-pointed stars, Solaria the Monster Carver has lightning bolts, Eclipsa the Queen of Darkness has spades, and Miss Heinous (revealed in "Monster Bash" to be Eclipsa's daughter Meteora) has clubs. These marks are the result of a longtime exposure to magic.

In "Game of Flags", most members of the Butterfly family are portrayed as exceptionally well-mannered yet uptight, and they look down on the loud, obnoxious, and unrefined Johansen family of King Butterfly. However, they can become just as ruthless and savage as the Johansens in their determination to win the titular contest.

"Into the Wand" shows several predecessors of the Butterfly family depicted in tapestry, including Celena the Shy, Solaria the Monster Carver, and Eclipsa the Queen of Darkness.

The guidebook Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension portrays and mentions other members of the Butterfly family, including Skywynne the Queen of Hours, Soupina the Strange, Dirrhennia the Heaped, and Crescenta the Eager.

In "Butterfly Trap", it is revealed that Eclipsa's ex-husband, King Shastacan, wanted nothing to do with Eclipsa's half-monster daughter, Meteora. So he had the Magic High Commission swap out Meteora with a Mewman peasant and had the official records changed to say that Festivia was the heir to the throne. This means that all future members of the Butterfly family aren't actually related to Eclipsa and puts their royalty into question.

In "Conquer", Meteora returns to Mewni to reclaim her birthright. After successfully conquering the kingdom, she destroyed all tapestries of queens after Eclipsa (including Moon, Solaria and Celena).
