~ Marie Laveau, declaring war against Fiona Goode and her witches

Marie Laveau is one of the main antagonists of American Horror Story: Coven. She is the Voodoo Queen, who is well known throughout the city of New Orleans. Her status in the Voodoo practice is equivalent to that of the Supreme Witch.

She is portrayed by Angela Bassett.


Marie is a Voodoo queen and revered by those who practice the religion and craft. While living in the 1800's her attire was that of long and elegant dresses; in post modern New Orleans her style is more modern, wearing dresses of varied colors with antiquated hairstyles. When she performs rituals, she wears white clothes and a tignon.

When crossed Marie is quick to take revenge and her force is one to be reckoned with. Marie Laveau, and her voodoo following, hold much animosity toward witches, specifically the descendants of the Salem Witch Trials, her stance towards them changed however when she developed a deep respect, and friendship with Fiona Goode, after seeking refuge with the witches after the loss of her Voodoo followers.
