The Queen (Beauty and the Beast)

TheĀ QueenĀ was a posthumous character of the 2017 Disney live-action filmĀ Beauty and the BeastĀ based on the acclaimed 1991Ā animated classic with the same name. She is the late mother of the Prince (who was transformed into theĀ Beast) who used to rule an unnamed French kingdom alongside her cruel husband, theĀ the King.

Role in the film

Unlike the King, the Queen was kind and caring towards her son; she sang her favorite lullaby to her boy when he was sick in bed. She was also well-liked by the castle servants, as they consider her to be a better parent than the King himself.Ā Unfortunately, the Queen died of an illness when the Prince was a child, leaving the King to raise him as arrogant and shallow as he was, much to the servants' discomfort. Following the King's death, the Prince became as arrogant as his father, and it wasn't until one winter night during a debutante ball, a visitingĀ EnchantressĀ places a spell on the Prince as punishment for denying her any shelter, transforming him into the Beast and the servants into household objects. After erasing the memory of the castle from the townsfolk, the Enchantress tells the Beast that he can break the spell by learning to love another and earn her love in return before the enchanted rose's last petal falls, otherwise his monstrous form will remain and that the servants will become permanent antiques, much to their distraught.

Because of this event, the Beast felt extremely ashamed of his actions and despised his deceased father for causing his pain; even tearing up a family portrait of himself and the King in retaliation (though the portrait of the Queen remains intact as the Beast couldn't bear himself to ruin it due to his genuine love for her). Eventually, a young village bookworm namedĀ BelleĀ reached out to the Beast's heart after he saved her from a wolf pack. To that end, Belle carries on the Queen's legacy by helping the Beast unleash his inner humanity; it even made him sympathize over Belle's loss ofĀ her motherĀ (who died succumbing to a plague when Belle was an infant). After the Beast finally earned Belle's love, it effectively breaks the spell and turns the Beast and his servants back to normal, much to their delight.
