Background: Once Upon a Time...[]

In Irish folklore, the last High Queen of the Daoine Sidhe - and wife of the High King Finvarra - was named Una (or Oonagh, or Oona, or Uonaidh etc.). In the ballad tradition of Northern England and Lowland Scotland, she was called the Queen of Elphame.

She is both beautiful and seductive, and also as terrible and deadly. The Fairy Queen is said to pay a tithe every seven years to retain the powers that all Fae benefit from, and her mortal lovers often provide this sacrifice. In Tam Lin, the title character tells his mortal lover:

"At the end of seven years
She pays a tithe to Hell
I so fair and full of flesh
I fear it be myself"
