30 Days of Fictional Females Meme - Day Fourteen: Favourite older female character

Day Fourteen: Favourite older female character
I like older female characters who are anything but grandmas sitting in rocking chairs and baking cookies. This isn't to say that they can't be grandmas, I just want them to still have personalities and of course for me, the feistier are those personalities the better. The two examples that sprang to mind first are Sophia from Golden Girls and Agnes Nutter, even from beyond the grave, in Good Omens. I'm not even positive Agnes's age is ever given, but she seems like she could qualify for this question. Both Sophia and Agnes are going to tell the world what's what and it is your own bloody fault if you get into trouble by not listening to them. Rock on!

I completely agree with you on Agnes Nutter but if I were going to pick one, I'd have to toss a coin between Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg - I think I'd end up picking Granny, purely because of Carpe Jugulum.

I haven't read Carpe Jugulum yet. I'm way behind on DiscWorld. But from what I have read, I'm a fan of both of them but like Granny Weatherwax a bit better.
