Background information[]

Personality[]

As an adult, the Queen of Hearts “rules over the kingdom of Wonderland with an iron fist,” and is described as “withholding” and “tyrannical.” Despite being Red's mother, sharing mother-daughter moments and helping her (both on a few and rare occasions), the Queen of Hearts has proven to be ruthless even towards her own daughter as shown in Beyond the Isle of the Lost: Wonderland: A Descendants Novel, when she locks Red up for a whole night along with Ace and Chester, who had refused to betray his friends, also when she turns Ace into another soldier of The Crimson Army, while Chester turns him into a cat, so that Red could concentrate on the annual Wonderland tea party.

The younger version of the Queen of Hearts, Bridget, however, is “sweet-natured, bubbly, generous — and the complete opposite of her grown-up self.” Because of her good soul, she gives compliments to others, can be apologetic and comforting, even when she's not at fault and doesn't appear to have ill will to those who are unkind to her (mainly Uliana), until she pulled a cruel prank on Bridget with the assistance of her gang. This caused her to become villainous and demanding. While talking to Chloe and Red, Bridget also comments that she would want her daughter to think for herself and she doesn't resort to stealing banned books from Merlin Academy since it's risky.

Despite her negative traits, she's back to being good-hearted as an adult after the timeline gets altered.

Descendants: The Rise of Red[]

The Queen of Hearts is present as the heartless and tyrannical ruler of Wonderland. She tries to raise her daughter, Red, into becoming just as ruthless as herself. However, her daughter simply wishes to be in charge of her own life, which she often criticizes and makes remarks on, such as calling her a "disappoint". She gives power to Red and lets her come up with her own rules, such as deciding sinister punishments for others, which ultimately ends in Cinderella being at stake of an execution as she demands her iconic line "Off with her head!".

  • The white is also a reference to the White Queen and Red Queen in Wonderland as in Descendants, there is only one queen, so all three monarchy roles are all merged together to form Bridget.
