Anna Molli is the Red Queen Tonight, Or Possibly the Queen of Hearts

I thought the lovely blue-haired cam babe Anna Molli was the Red Queen tonight, but Wikipedia (see below) suggests that maybe she is actually the Queen of Hearts, and I am committing a common error.

The Red Queen is a fictional character in Lewis Carroll’s fantasy novella, Through the Looking-Glass. She is often confused with the Queen of Hearts from the previous book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, although the two are very different.

Overview

With a motif of Through the Looking-Glass being representations of the game of chess, the Red Queen could be viewed as an antagonist in the story as she is the queen for the side opposing Alice. Despite this, their initial encounter is a cordial one, with the Red Queen explaining the rules of Chess concerning promotion — specifically that Alice is able to become a queen by starting out as a pawn and reaching the eighth square at the opposite end of the board. As a queen in the game of Chess, the Red Queen is able to move swiftly and effortlessly.

Later, in Chapter 9, she appears with the White Queen, posing a series of typical Wonderland/Looking-Glass questions (“Divide a loaf by a knife: what’s the answer to that?”), and then celebrating Alice’s promotion from pawn to queen. When that celebration goes awry, Alice turns upon the Red Queen, whom she “considers as the cause of all the mischief”, and shakes her until the queen morphs into Alice’s pet kitten. In doing this, Alice presents an end game, awakening from the dream world of the looking glass, by both realizing her hallucination and symbolically “taking” the Red Queen in order to checkmate the Red King.

Confusion with the Queen of Hearts

The Red Queen is commonly mistaken for the Queen of Hearts in the story’s predecessor, Alice in Wonderland, but in reality shares none of her characteristics other than being a queen. Indeed, Carroll, in his lifetime, made the distinction between the two Queens by saying:
“I pictured to myself the Queen of Hearts as a sort of embodiment of ungovernable passion – a blind and aimless Fury. The Red Queen I pictured as a Fury, but of another type; her passion must be cold and calm – she must be formal and strict, yet not unkindly; pedantic to the 10th degree, the concentrated essence of all governesses!”
—Lewis Carroll, in “Alice on the Stage”

The 1951 animated film Alice in Wonderland perpetuates the long-standing confusion between the Red Queen and the Queen of Hearts. In the film, the Queen of Hearts delivers several of the Red Queen’s statements, the most notable being based on her “all the ways about here belong to me”. Both characters say this to suggest importance and possible arrogance, but in the Red Queen’s case it has a double meaning since her status as a Chess-queen means that she can move in any direction she desires.

In both American McGee’s Alice and Tim Burton’s film adaptation of the books, the characters are also combined, leading to further popular misconception. Also, Jefferson Airplane’s song “White Rabbit” contains the lyric “and the Red Queen’s off with her head”, another instance of the two characters combined or mistaken for one another.
