Titania is the name given the Fairy queen in William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream but is also found in Ovid as an alternative name for the goddess Diana. Flower Fairies serve as her attendants. Titania is the Fairy credited with giving the Fairy Flag to the Chief of Clan MacLeod of the Isle of Skye in the thirteenth century. Since her stage debut with Shakespeare, Titania has made frequent appearances in popular culture including in books, paintings, and video games.
Titania and Mab are battling Fairy queens in Mike Carey and John Bolton’s graphic novel, God Save the Queen (Vertigo Comics).
