The Red Queen is the current monarch in the kingdom of Tearling and a sorceress-tyrant from the neighboring country, Mortmesne. She is a malevolent queen who rules in a time set three centuries after an environmental catastrophe occurred. Kelsea Glynn is an enemy of the kingdom because she is trying to take back the throne that belonged to her deceased mother.
In The Invasion of the Tearling, The Red Queen is discovered to be Evelyn Raleigh, the lesser known daughter of one of the previous Tearling monarchs.
