Other plot elements include the daughter as a McGuffin (/Operation
Chaos/), and the father we rarely see (The Witches of /Karres/,
/Podkayne of Mars/)
There's an occasional princess with a living father.
Oh, Barbara Hambly has a book (/Stranger at the Wedding/) where a minor
character in some of her earlier books goes home where she was once her
father's pride and joy before she took up magic - when her younger
sister is preparing to get married in a wedding designed to give her
father more social status.
