Carmella "Mama" Corleone (December 8, 1897 – January 27, 1959) is a fictional character in Mario Puzo's The Godfather. She is the wife of Don Vito Corleone. 1914 - Vito & Carmella get married.


Though she figures somewhat prominently in the book (as a rather traditional Italian immigrant woman with very broken English) who developes a close relationship with Michael's wife Kay, she is nowhere given a name, and receives one seemingly as an afterthought in the film's credits.


Mrs. Corleone is portrayed by Morgana King, who is better known as a singer, and she is briefly given a chance to show some of her vocal skills in the wedding reception scene of The Godfather Part I. She is given more interesting lines of dialogue in The Godfather Part II, notably when she confronts her daughter Connie about her acts early in the film, and when she discusses family life with her son, Michael, who is becoming worried as he realizes that his strong-hand Don methods are alienating him from the other members of the family.
