Fans of American Horror Story might be surprised to learn that the Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau, actually existed. When she wasn’t performing voodoo rituals, she was cutting hair for wealthy white socialites, and was both feared and respected for her incredible supernatural abilities. At the peak of her popularity, she held an audience of over 12,000 and became extremely wealthy. 

Laveau died in 1881 and was buried in a special crypt, that is considered to be the most haunted in America. Visitors claim to have seen her spirit pacing around, wearing her trademark turban and whispering Santeria Voodoo curses to disrespectful gawkers.

Fiona Goode: I have been to St. Louis No. 1, and I have seen the tomb of Laveau, seen the fat tourists from Little Rock to Hackensack drawing crosses on the bricks–making wishes to the bones of Marie Laveau. Little do they know, all they have to do to get their wishes granted was come down here to the Ninth Ward and get their hair braided.

Marie Laveau: And what is your wish, Witch?
