The chapter discusses the cultural stereotype of the Snow Queen in four stories for young readers/viewers: Selina Gaye’s The Maiden of the Iceberg (1867), Frank Barrett’s The Finding of the Ice Queen (1878), Dorothy Carter’s Snow-Queen of the Air (1941) and the Disney film, Frozen, released in 2013. The representation of the figure is sensitive to political developments. As a personification of the Arctic, she needs to be conquered during periods when the Arctic is regarded as available for exploitation, while at a time of climate change when the Arctic is perceived as endangered, she instead needs to be protected.
