Cora is based on the Miller's Daughter from the fairytale, "Rumpelstiltskin", and the Queen of Hearts from the novel, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

History of the Queen[]

The Dark One gives Regina a looking glass to get rid of Cora. On the wedding day, Cora notices the clothed mirror and pulls it off. While Cora excitedly talks about her daughter's future role as Queen, Regina once again voices that she doesn't wish for any of that. As Regina attempts to push her mother into the looking glass, Cora restrains her with magic. She knows Regina's intentions of getting rid of her, and is not having any of it, but remains unaware that Rumplestiltskin appears in the mirror to urge the latter to do what must be done. Gathering strength in anger, Regina breaks free and uses magic for the first time, causing Cora to fly towards the looking glass. Cora manages to hang on for a brief moment with a look of surprise and sadness on her face before slipping through the mirror, which shatters into pieces.  Cora journeys through the looking glass to a world called Wonderland. Over some period of time, she rises to power as the Queen of Hearts.


  • Before Rumplestiltskin was imprisoned, he fought Cora and won. It is implied that she came close to winning.
  • The mask she holds resembles the baton that the Queen of Hearts carries in the Disney film Alice in Wonderland.
