Queen Eva was a human woman.
The Queen of an enchanted kingdom in the Black Forest, Queen Eva sat sewing by a window one winter's day when she pricked her finger with her needle. When she saw the blood, on a whim, she wished for a daughter with lips as red as blood, skin as white as snow, and hair as black as ebony. In the spring, she gave birth to such a child, a baby girl that she and her husband, the King, named Snow White, but fell ill and died soon thereafter. Her husband later remarried the seductive sorceress Grimhilde, and there is some speculation that Grimhilde might have actually been responsible for Eva's death.
Behind the scenesEdit
Queen Eva was planned to appear in 1937 in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
She was cut for time, along with the sequence she is most well-known for, which stuck quite close to the original Brothers Grimm version of the fairy tale. Queen Eva was nonetheless featured in three different storybook adaptions of the movies, two sticker books from France and Belgium, and an American "Golden Book" version. Counterpart of her and her husband were later featured in the Once Upon a Time TV series, where their names (which can be assumed to be the same in the regular universe) were unveiled.
