Which is It? Tangled or The Hunchback of Notre Dame?

I just saw an Academy Award-nominated Disney film about a protagonist with a unique physical attribute who was confined to a life of isolation in a tower by a villainous parental surrogate who claimed to only want what’s best for the protagonist. Unbeknownst to the protagonist, the villainous parental figure was the reason for the protagonist’s separation from the protagonist’s true parents. The protagonist then disobeyed the parental figure and left the tower in order to attend an annual festival that the protagonist have only observed from afar all life long—only to find out later that the festival celebrates the protagonist’s royal status. The festival ended in the breaking of the protagonist’s heart, causing the protagonist to admit that the parental figure had been right all along. In the course of the protagonist’s story, the protagonist would come to a place of assembly for the criminals and outcasts of society, who all turned out to be misunderstood, decent folks. The villainous parental figure covets youthful beauty, and eventually died falling from the tower the protagonist was imprisoned in. The film also featured a horse in the employ of law enforcement whose name is associated with greatness. The horse followed a handsome male love interest character who came to be on the run from the law. He was severely injured at one point from a sharp pointy weapon thanks to the villain, but survived with the help of the protagonist. The handsome male love interest ended up with the girl of course.

Am I talking about the 2010 Disney film Tangled, or the 1996 Disney film The Hunchback of Notre Dame?
