Random information on the term “Fairy queen”:
A changeling is a creature found in folklore and folk religion throughout Europe. A changeling was believed to be a fairy child that had been left in place of a human child stolen by the fairies. The theme of the swapped child is common in medieval literature and reflects concern over infants thought to be afflicted with unexplained diseases, disorders, or developmental disabilities.
A changeling is typically identifiable via a number of traits; in Irish legend, a fairy child may appear sickly and won’t grow in size like a normal child, and may have notable physical characteristics such as a beard or long teeth. They may also display intelligence far beyond their apparent years, as well as possess uncanny insight. A common way that a changeling could identify itself is through displaying unusual behaviour when it thinks it’s alone, such as jumping about, dancing or playing an instrument — though this last example is found only within Irish and Scottish legend.
Random information on the term “MAB”:
Queen Mab is a fairy referred to in William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, where “she is the fairies’ midwife.” Later, she appears in other poetry and literature, and in various guises in drama and cinema. In the play, her activity is described in a famous speech by Mercutio written originally in prose and often adapted into iambic pentameter, in which she is described as a miniature creature who performs midnight pranks upon sleepers. Being driven by a team of atomies, she rides her chariot over their noses and “delivers the fancies of sleeping men.” She is also described as a midwife to help sleepers “give birth” to their dreams. She may be a figure borrowed from folklore, and though she is often associated with the Irish Medb in popular culture, and has been suggested by historian Thomas Keightley to be from Habundia, a more likely origin for her name would be from Mabel and the Middle English derivative “Mabily” (as used by Chaucer) all from the Latin amabilis (“lovable”).
