From history's most famous witches to everyone's favorite fictional ones, these crafty, magical people remain some of the most inspiring that walk (or fly) across the earth. And since witches seem to run in families, you very well may have some witch blood inside of you.

Whether you like the Wicked Witch of the West, the Hocus Pocus witches, or Hermione Granger, there's a witch out there for everyone.
