What is known of the Raven Queen's origins?

Citing sources is a plus.

    \$\begingroup\$ are you looking for in-game D&D references, or real-world mythological references - or both? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I was looking for D&D references. I wasn't aware there was a real-world mythological figure known as the Raven Queen. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I do disagree. She is a new addition to the D&D mythology, along with Githyanki, beholders, Pelor and Vecna. They are all D&D fluff or color, as in bits of the setting that are not mechanical in nature. Other 4e fluff bits: The Primordials, the Shadowfell, etc. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Judd: Hmmm... For me religion-and-deities covers "color text" and "part of the setting and mostly non-mechanical in nature" while being a specific description of the content. (And one person's fluff could be another's silver.) \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I don't see fluff as a negative word. I see it as fiction bits that don't have mechanical weight in play. \$\endgroup\$

For a D&D reference I'll point you to the related Wikipedia article (it bears a good summary of the Raven's Queen back history).

For a real-world mythological reference, this post goes to a fairly good level of analysis on Greek and Norse mythologies.

Manual of the Planes has a large number of references and on page 60 give some details on her realm.

Open Graves: Secrets of the Undead also gives a lot of information scattered thorugh out it's pages. Page 22-23 has a whole section write up on her.
