The Evil Queen is a villain summoned in "Hawk and the Poisoned Apples" who returns in The Magic Fair.

She is based on the Evil Queen from the German fairy tale Snow White.

Her granddaughter Sandra appears as a student in A Day at Merlin Academy.


The Queen is incredibly vain and would destroy anyone in order to remain the fairest of them all. She seems to have accepted the loss of her looks even joking about it in front of the students, but her thirst for revenge and hatred towards Snow White is as strong and as vicious as ever. She loves being evil and relishes in the chaos she brings and delights in trying her poisons on unsuspecting victims.

She is a bit clumzy and eccentric but underneath it all, she is a cruel, vicious and an extremely dangerous woman. As a former queen, she has some leadership qualities as she seemed to be the default leader of the coven formed by herself, the Sea Witch and the Shortbread Witch.


The Queen was once extremely beautiful, so beautiful that she once held the title of fairest of them all until Snow White surpassed her.

In her old age, she is an ugly old woman with pure white skin, a large chin, huge, high cheekbones and shoulder-length indigo hair.
