The Two Noble Kinsmen Characters

The Second Queen is the widow of a king who died fighting Creon of Thebes. 

With the two other queens she comes to plead to Theseus that he make war on Creon so that they may recover their dead husbands’ bodies and bury them. She pleads in the name of motherhood to the soon-to-be-married Hippolyta, whose personal power and history she admires. She is dressed in black, with a stained veil and an impressive crown.
