Origin

The Magic Mirror was owned by the Wicked Queen and has been depicted in different versions as either a hand mirror or a mirror on the wall.

Every morning, the Evil Queen asked the Magic Mirror the question "Magic mirror in my hand, who is the fairest in the land?". The mirror always replied: "My Queen, you are the fairest in the land." The Queen was always pleased with that, because the magic mirror never lied. But, when Snow White reached the age of seven, she becomes as beautiful as the day and even more beautiful than the Queen and when the Queen asked her mirror, it responded: "My Queen, you are the fairest here so true. But Snow White is a thousand times more beautiful than you." This resulted in the Evil Queen enlisting a huntsman to kill Snow White and bring her Snow White's lungs and liver.

After eating the lungs and liver of a boar that the Huntsman had passed off as Snow White's lungs and liver, the Evil Queen asked the Magic Mirror the question "Magic Mirror in my hand, who is the fairest in the land?" The mirror replied: "My Queen, you are the fairest here so true. But Snow White beyond the mountains at the seven Dwarfs is a thousand times more beautiful than you." This caused the Evil Queen to disguise herself as different women to kill Snow White.

After another attempt with a poison apple which was undone by the Prince Florimond of Calydon and Snow White marrying him, the Evil Queen asked the Magic Mirror who the fairest in the land was, the Magic Mirror quoted "You, my Queen, are fair so true. But the young Queen is a thousand times fairer than you." The Evil Queen learned too late at the wedding that the young queen in question was Snow White which eventually led to the Queen's death which varied per version.
