Queen Grimhilde is the name of the queen in "Snow White." In the Disney film "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," she is simply referred to as "The Queen."

The queen was first introduced in the Brothers Grimm fairy tale titled "Snow White," which was published in the early 1800s. Although she had a name in the film, the Disney version, which aired on December 21, 1937, never mentioned her by name. The original film produced by Disney featured the voice of Lucille La Verne. In the fairy tale, the queen is the stepmother of Snow White, and the real parents are never mentioned by name.
