I was thinking about Friday's post on the witches of Rahasia and of Ravenloft and it occurs to me that D&D lacks in iconic witches. There are great examples of Vampires, Liches, Wizards, Priests, Paladins, Rangers, enough Thieves to fill a guild, even Bards.
The witches in Rahasia are one thing, but the ones in Ravenloft don't even have proper names really.
Pathfinder does a good job with their iconics. Feiya is a proper witch, but even the sorceress Seoni is often referred to as a witch. Not to mention all the witches to be found in Irrisen like Queen Elvanna.

Who do we have for D&D?
Well for starters and maybe the most iconic is Iggwilv, the Witch-Queen. We also have Elena the Fair, Witch Queen of Summer. Also, while not as a well know or even explicitly a witch is Skyla.
There is also one witch that both D&D and Pathfinder share, Baba Yaga.
There was also Koliada, the Winter Witch. a Level 26 Solo Skirmisher from the 4th ed era adventure "Winter of the Witch". But there is not a lot out there about her. Interestingly Pathfinder also has a lot Winter and Cold related witches.
Dungeon Crawl Classics gives us Lady Kyleth, The Witch Queen.
Personally I'd love to see more. There might be more, I just haven't found them all yet.
