"GoldenSwan" is the fan-named ship involving Rumplestiltskin and Emma Swan on ABC's Once Upon a Time.

Ship Information

  • Emma and Rumple first met in Storybrooke, although Rumple knew about Emma long before she was even born, due to his ability of foresight.
  • Rumplestiltskin orchestrated the casting of the Dark Curse so that Emma would be the Savior and break said curse.
  • When Emma fell to the Dark One's Curse, she began seeing hallucinations of Rumplestiltskin fuelled by the Darkness.
  • Rumplestiltskin is the grandfather of Emma's son, Henry Mills.


  • Their names (Mr. Gold and Emma Swan) make up the name GoldenSwan.
  • GoldenSwan is not a canon ship, as Emma is married to Hook and Gold is married to Belle.
