Evil Queens We Are Secretly Jealous Of
Mirror, mirror on the wall.Who is the fairest of them all? We all know this queen from the Snow White fairy tale. In Snow White and The Huntsman becomes clear how beautiful but how horrible and selfish this queen is. Of course, we are raised with the idea that the wicked queens are the bad guys, and that’s true. But that does not mean that we can’t appreciate them for their ingenuity, their perseverance and their strength. They are, after all, just powerfulvwomen who know what they want and go for it. Following the release of The Snow White Chronicles – The Huntsman: Winter’s War and the two great queens, we listed the most malicious (but secretly the best) queens.
Ravenna, the Evil Queen – The Snow White Chronicles
Ravenna (Charlize Theron), also known as the Evil Queen, is our number one Darkest Queen. She terrifies the viewers in both Snow White and the Huntsman and the latest filmThe Snow White Chronicles – The Huntsman: Winter’s War. In this prequel and sequel in one, it becomes clear how she becomes the most evil queen by narcissism. Does she have a heart? She doesn’t know love and she only wants more power and wants to become more beautiful.The only weakness that Ravenna has, is her sister Freya who owns a kingdom far away from Ravenna’s empire. But when the two queens cross each other’s paths, rivalry erupts between the royal sisters. Will Freya, the cold Ice Queen, be supressed under Ravenna’s regime? Or will she stands up for her kingdom? Are you curious? You can already watch the trailer here!

As the sister of the most evil Queen Ravenna, Ice Queen Freya (Emily Blunt) is not inferior! Because of a tragedy, dark forces are provoked in Freya, and she isolates herself in her own kingdom that is covered with a layer of ice, where she continues to live far away from Ravenna. Love, friendship and trust are on her blacklist. Anyone who dares to submit to one of these feelings, has no chance of survival in the kingdom of this Ice Queen. She makes her kingdom of ice into one of the mightiest empires by training a strong Huntsman army. These brave warriors, who were once children, are trained at a high level to become the brave Hunters they are today. But is Ice Queen Freya stronger than her famous sister Ravenna, or does she better fear the dark magical power of her sister? You’ll find out in The Snow White Chronicles – The Huntsman: Winter’s War which will be released on the 20tf of April.
Off with their heads! A sentence that you probably have noticed when you know the fairy tale Alice in Wonderland. The Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) rules Wonderland with an iron fist andlet behead people for the most stupid reasons. Her husband, the King of Hearts, is subordinated and dare not to say a bad word in front of this despicable ruler. Her life is an endless monotony of tea and cakes. The only highlights in her life are the lawsuits where she finally can pronounce sentence against the accused. Helena Bonham Carter triumphs in this role as Queen of Hearts. She is hilarious as the insane and enormous insecure queen with the giant head. Watch the comic compilation of the well-known statement of this ruthless Queen of Hearts.
Anyone who lives in Narnia knows this shrew. The White Witch,Jadis (Tilda Swinton) is a mean half-giant who took control over the whole country. Using her magic, she creates an endless winter in Narnia. Celebrating Christmas is out of the question. Like the world that she makes, her skin is pale and cold. Her character lacks passion and compassion and that’s why she is feared by all residents of Narnia. You can’t feel safe because you will be continuously monitored by this tyrant. With her secret animal police and her network of spies, she keeps an eye on every corner of the country. The only emotion she ever seems to feel is anger. The punishments she gives are extremely awful. She turns anyone with just a little contradiction, into stone statues which she uses as decoration in her own castle and garden. The most frightening in this White Witch is that she can manipulate the dark side of one’s character and can let them do anything she wants. Want to know how Tilda Swinton has managed to crawl into the skin of this evil creature?
In a list of evil queens, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headly) definitely can’t be missed. Cersei seems a strong, beautiful and powerful woman. She is worshiped by many men in the Game of Thrones series. But behind this dazzling beauty, a black character conceals. Cersei is convinced that she is the chosen one to sit on the Iron Throne. The battle for the throne is a game you can only win or lose. There is no middle way, and Cersei Lannister knows that! She is so cunning that even if she loses, she still comes out better than the winner, by using her false and murderous practices. Do not trust this wily serpent. Before you know it, you’re in her grip and you will not get out of it, because Cersei Lannister knows what she wants and how to get it. She is so bad and dodgy that you can only haverespect for this smart and powerful lady in a man’s world.
She might look like one of the scariest creatures in this list but that is undoubtedly due to the fearsome horns on the top of her head. Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) seems like a horrifying creature in this story, because there is no glimpse of compassion in this ‘mistress of all evil’. On the other hand, the prequel is exposing her ‘not so black character’. All the bad feelings that came out in the story of “Sleeping Beauty”, are coming from the nature-loving fairy that Maleficent once was. She fights to preserve her magical enchanted forest, while people want to destroy this magical place. She is a victim of deep betrayal and wants revenge. Does she belong in this list? Her character was very nice but would you like to meet this frightening fairy in the middle of the night? No thanks!
Fortunately, we don’t have to worry about the evil forces of our own queens. Queen Mathilde from Belgium has a heart of gold and Queen Maxima from the Netherlands is one of the good guys for sure!
