Snow White was orphaned at a young age because her stepmother murdered her father. Her stepmother is a vain woman that worships a mirror.
The mirror tells the queen that she is no longer the "fairest of them all"because Snow White has become of age to claim that title. The queen sends a huntsman to kill her. The huntsman does not kill her, instead he protects her.
The queen has failed in attempting to kill Snow White several times. She takes matters into her own hands and poisons her with a deadly apple. Shortly after her "funeral," she is awakened by a kiss from the huntsman. She then forms an army to rebel against her stepmother.
