The Queen of Ev was the lovely wife of King Evoldo. She is tall and slender, and beautifully robed.

Her husband sold her and their ten children to the Nome King in exchange for a long life. They were transformed into pieces of bric-a-brac to decorate his Palace, but were eventually rescued by a group from the Land of Oz.

When they returned home to Evna, the Queen's oldest son, Evardo, was crowned king.

The Royal Family of Ev later visited the Emerald City of Oz to attend Princess Ozma of Oz's birthday party.

Her 10 children were:

  • King Evardo XV: Evardo was a grave and quiet youth, and when they returned to Evna he was crowned King Evardo XV and ruled wisely and with justice. He was fifteen years of age, had fifteen silver buckles on his jacket, and was the fifteenth Evardo to rule the Land of Ev.
