Much like Zelda, Eilonwy is, well, a princess, and a secondary character. She's meant to be sort of a damsel for Taron the actual hero of the story to save and a romantic interest for him. But does she really need his help? Oh no. No no no. When you first meet her, she's been captured by the Horned King and held prisoner in his dungeon for some time, and really, she's gotten bored of the whole thing.
She's also in the middle of escaping from said dungeon all on her lonesome. When she and Taron first encounter each other, she's actually popping up out of the floor of his cell like a very pretty gopher, surprised to encounter another person and disappointed that he's not someone a little more formidable who might assist in her escape. Despite her disappointment, though, she does offer to let him tag along.

No one should be forced to remain a prisoner just because they're not as talented as she is. When they do finally escape, Taron tries to take all the credit, of course, but Eilonwy doesn't let him get away with such nonsense. After all, she probably would have gotten them all the way out if Taron hadn't gotten help from a magic sword. And what does Eilonwy get for all her awesomeness? Well, she's known as the "forgotten Disney princess" since the House of Mouse couldn't find it in their hearts — for over three decades — to induct her into their pantheon of royal women, despite protests from loyal fans.
