The Queen of Midland (ミッドランド王妃 Middorando ōhi?) was Charlotte's step mother. She disapproved of Charlotte's interest in Griffith and became angry at the mercenary leader for plotting the death of her secret lover Julius.

Appearance Edit

The Queen was a middle-aged, aristocratic woman who dressed in clothes typical of medieval European royalty. Usually, her face wore a cold, disapproving gaze. Her dress was grandiose and adorned with embroidered patterns, and her crown and jewelry signified her immense wealth and status. She held a fan in her hand, and when mourning for her murdered lover, her clothing befitted a funeral.

Personality Edit

The Queen of Midland was a manipulative, caustic woman who cheated on her husband with his own brother, feeling unloved by the former. [1] She valued the purity of her social standing and conspired to kill Griffith after he rose to nobility despite his origins as a "lowly commoner". However, her primary motive for carrying out his assassination was the death of her lover Julius, who was killed by Guts at Griffith's behest. The Queen was shown to love and deeply care for Julius, becoming furious at his death, which surprised even her as she merely considered him a consort.

Story Edit

Golden Age Arc Edit

This section requires expansion.

Notes Edit

  • In the 1997 anime, the Queen never has an affair with Count Julius. Instead, she is only seen remembering Princess Charlotte give Griffith the stone knight. Her motive now stems from her pride as a noble; she thinks that the 'nobility is now secure' with Griffith's supposed demise.
  • In the second movie, the Queen only appears in one scene and her death is omitted.
  • The Queen of Midland was not a native of Midland.[1]
