Queen Maeve

If you combined the likes of Cate Blanchett, Kat Dennings, ScarJo, Anne Hathaway, Marilyn Monroe, Taylor Swift, and a pirate, you'd get Queen Maeve. Totally hot, totally powerful, totally good at invading your lands and taking your stuff. Maeve is in quite a few stories—like that super famous epic about the Brown Bull of Cooley—and it's not always easy to tell if she's a good guy or a bad guy. Easier things to deduce? She loves dudes, she loves fighting, and she's kind of a klepto. Maeve is the Queen of Connacht, and she wants your (family) jewels.
