The Evil Queen

The Evil Queen
The Queen, often referred to as the Evil Queen or the Wicked Queen, is a fictional character and the main antagonist in "Snow White", a fairy tale set in the German countryside, recorded by the Brothers Grimm. Other versions of the Queen appear in "Snow White" derivative works, and the character has also became an archetype for many unrelated works of fiction.

The Evil Queen
The Queen is a vindictive stepmother who is obsessed with being "the fairest in the land". The young princess Snow White makes her so jealous, that the Queen concocts several plans to kill Snow White through the use of witchcraft. A driving force in the story is the Queen's Magic Mirror, her dark confessor and conscience. The tale is a lesson for young children warning against narcissism and pride.
