God and goddess

Queen Lillian (born Lillian Pendragon) was the queen of Far Far Away. She is the wife (later widow) of King Harold and the mother of Princess Fiona.

Lillian is a good and pious Queen and is loved by the people. She is a good mother, because she doesn't mind that her daughter married an ogre, as she just wants her to be happy. In Shrek the Third, it is revealed that she is a skilled fighter (she says to Fiona that her fighting skills were inherited from her). At the end of the film, she becomes a grandmother when Fiona gives birth to Ogre triplets. Unlike her husband, she is of royal birth; her father was the King of Far Far Away. The throne was passed on towards Lillian and her husband, Harold after the latter's death. They became the new "King and Queen" of Far Far Away. It is suggested that Arthur Pendragon's father was most likely her brother.

Queen Lillian makes her debut in the film Shrek 2, as the "Queen" of Far Far Away. Although initially surprised at Fiona's transformation into an ogre, she is far more understanding of what has happened and, seeing that her daughter is deeply in love, accepts Shrek into their family. When King Harold is turned back into a Frog at the end of the movie, she still accepts him as she did many years ago. It was revealed that she and Harold are the "Princess and the Frog" from the famous fairy tale by Brothers Grimm.

Shrek the Third

She becomes a more determined character, leading the pack of princesses through a series of tunnels in the castle, and breaking two walls by head-butting, whilst humming "My Favorite Things" (an in-joke referring to the song sung by Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music) and "A Spoonful of Sugar" from "Mary Poppins", another role Andrews is famous for. She is able to rally the other princesses from being damsels in distress to independent fighters. It was also revealed in the movie that Fiona inherited her fighting skills from her mother (Lillian even asks "Well, you didn't think you got your fighting skills from your father, did you?") Lillian is last seen after the movie's finale in Shrek's swamp home, happily seeing her grandchildren and plays with an ogre triplet, who spits gobs up on her dress. She initially looks distressed and a little disgusted, this changes as she finds it adorable and cute.

Shrek Forever After

At the beginning of the film, she is right about to sign a contract to Rumpelstiltskin, to "lose all their problems" but then one of their servants said that her daughter was freed from the tower. In the present party of her grand-children: Fergus, Farkle and Felicia. In the alternate universe, Rumpelstiltskin explains that he had the kingdom when King Harold and Queen Lillian signed the contract and unleashed all their problems. They eventually disappeared, but it is a facade as she is still the "Queen" of Far Far Away.

Secret passage

Decorous and loved by all, Queen Lillian is tolerant of her daughter's decision to marry an ogre if it will make her happy, a thought that initially stands in contrast to her husband's. She seams to be briefly shy and sad after King Harold dies in Shrek the Third and doesn't say much, but after a little while, she perks up and begins accepting life without her husband. She is determined and nothing means more to her than her family; when they are in trouble, she does everything in her power to save them.
