Titania is the queen of the fairies in William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream. One of the central conflicts of the play begins when she and her husband King Oberon are engaged in a quarrel over which of them should have custody of a changeling boy whom Titania abducted from India to be part of Faerie. Oberon's servant Robin Goodfellow casts a spell which causes Titania to fall in love with a common human weaver whose head has been transformed into that of a donkey.
Titania in "A Late Symmer Night's Battle"Edit
Queen Titania ruled Faerie jointly with her husband King Oberon. Oberon and Titania divided command of the fairy army between them, with Oberon having authority over the male soldiers and Titania over the females.
Following the adoption of the human infant Ghosh into the Faerie world, and the humorous misadventure surrounding this incident, the royal couple decided to go their second honeymoon. While they were away, their army became locked in a strange three-way conflict with German kobolds and wild reremice.
Oberon and Titania rushed home when they learned of the kobold attack, to find that the situation had resolved itself so quickly, that all they had to do was finalize the treaty with the kobold leaders.
