Who is the Queen Araneae in Diablo 3?

Araneae was created by Lazarus during the age known as the During the Darkening of Tristram. While King Leoric was losing his mind, he ordered Lazarus to seal the caves under Tristram, in a paranoid effort to safeguard himself from the people he felt were threatening him. Lazarus made a group of spiders get inside the caves, led by Araneae, and after this none who entered the caves ever returned.

The fight is pretty straightforward. You must deplete her life while avoiding the poisonous puddles until she reaches a point where she will retreat. Kill all the minions that will spawn and prepare for the next phase, a process that will be repeated until she dies. Just keep in mind to keep moving, and stay away from the poisonous puddles, and you should be fine.
