Posted on Jun 11, by Hans Christian Andersen Illustrated by Edmund Dulac There is a legend that, once upon a time, a beautiful fairy, the Snow Queen, lived on the highest, most solitary peaks of the Alps.
Edit As explained by William to Eric, it was believed that the Mirror's Dark magic had died along with Ravenna, but they had been mistaken.
Even after Ravenna's death, they eventually found out that there was an evil in the Mirror, an evil that had been becoming increasingly powerful with time, to the extent where Snow White was revealed to have taken ill because of it - the evil in the Mirror caused her to be unable to take her eyes off it, and she could constantly hear its voice calling out to her.
Hence, Snow White ordered it to be taken to the Sanctuary, which was the one place where its Dark magic could be forever contained. However, the men who were charged with escorting the Mirror to the Sanctuary never returned, and Eric later found out that the Mirror had caused them to turn on and even kill one another.
Resurrection Edit After Freya obtained the Mirror for herself, a voice within the Mirror guided her to chant a spell that, to her astonishment and wonder, resurrected Ravenna. Ravenna reveals that, before she took her last breath, she sent her spirit into the Mirror, and waited for someone to free her.
However, it soon became evident that whatever intimacy the two sisters once shared now utterly belonged in the past, for they were now utterly different people: While Ravenna assured Freya that while she would never doubt her rule, she made it The snow queen of her belief in her methods being the better ones, and reminded Freya of her position as a younger sister who owes the older The snow queen not only her loyalty, but also her magical powers.
Ravenna newly resurrected Eventually, during the invasion of the citadel by Eric and the Dwarfs, Freya was seen preparing her Huntsman for the impending war.
When Eric shot an arrow at her, Ravenna appeared out of nowhere and caught the arrow in the nick of time, to the astonishment of all the onlookers.
She threw the bolt back at Eric, who narrowly dodged it. Sara attempted to murder Freya, who froze her in place.
Eric and Sara were apprehended and brought forward to face justice. Freya was horrified to learn that Sara was still in love with Eric, and Ravenna encouraged her sister to follow her own law and have them executed.
But Eric encouraged the rest of the Huntsman to shake of their oath to Freya and they began to rebel.
Ravenna recognised the rising tension and conjured dark fay, in the form of a thick black ooze shaped like sharp tendrils.
Ravenna declared to Eric that no love would save him. She proceeded to lay waste to the entire crowd, impaling them with the dark tendrils.
However, a horrified Freya ordered her sister to stop killing her men, and in a rage, she conjured an immense wall of ice to separate Ravenna from the Huntsmen. Ravenna was forced to stop her attack, but mocked Freya for having retained what she viewed to be a pathetic weakness despite her efforts to make her strong.
Unexpectedly, this bold statement aroused Freya's suspicions, and when she questioned her sister, Ravenna refused to answer out of guilt.
The second death of Ravenna Refusing to take no for an answer, Freya grabbed her sister and issued a command to the Mirror, which led to her learning of how Ravenna was the true cause of her daughter's death as well as her heartbreak.
Grief-stricken and horrified by this betrayal, Freya broke down in tears and vilified her sister. Ravenna responded she was stronger for this reason and gave Freya a small wound through the shoulder with the dark fay. At this point, Eric and Sara had scaled the ice wall and engaged Ravenna in battle.
Eric fought past her dark fay and elbowed her in the face, but this only enraged her as she knocked him back. Freya then joined the fight and launched a wave of ice at her sister, freezing Ravenna in place. As Ravenna began to break free, she repelled Eric and Sara, before Freya embraced her and attempted to freeze her whole.
Ravenna impaled her through the abdomen with the dark fay, after which she apologized to her sister, but screamed how she envied the life that Freya once had, love and a child. But Freya's attack had weakened her, as Ravenna's mouth began to bleed with dark liquid.
Ravenna then turned into a flock of golden ravens as Sara attempted to kill her, returning to her normal form instantly and throwing Sara aside. But Freya froze the mirror, weakening Ravenna and allowing Eric to beat her and hurl his axe into the mirror. The mirror began to break, and as Ravenna screamed it shattered, and her body turned to gold and shattered in turn.
Presumably she is dead again, but at the end of the film a golden bird is seen flying away, and landing next to Queen Snow White, hinting that her spirit is still alive.

Despite her great age, some of Ravenna's personality traits - such as her extreme emotional outbursts and overreactions to bad news - are rather childish in nature, implying a severely stunted emotional growth.The Historic Snow Queen Lodge was built during Aspen's Wild West Silver Boom and continues to sparkle with Victorian charm..
