"I will give this wretched world the queen it deserves!"
- Queen Ravenna
Queen Ravenna is the main antagonist of the 2012 fantasy movie Snow White and the Huntsman.
She was portrayed by Charlize Theron, who also portrayed Aileen Wuornos in the 2003 film Monster.
Ravenna, also known as the Evil Queen which is the same name of the evil monarch from the legend of Snow White she is based on, is the selfish and tyrannical ruler of Tabor, who learns that her stepdaughter, Snow White, is destined to surpass her as the "Fairest One of All". However, upon learning that the only way to remain in power is by consuming Snow White's heart, Ravenna recruits a Huntsman to capture and kill the young princess in exchange for his freedom, and presumably, using her own magic to resurrect his lost wife from the dead which is but a lie.
