A queen is defined as "a female monarch who reigns in her own right and is equivalent to the rank of a king." They come into power in several ways, some of which include by marrying a king (queen consort), by serving as the guardian of a child monarch until they become of age (queen regent) and, of course, by birthright.
We have encountered each of these types of queens in literature, on television as well as on the big screen. Many of them have been based on real-life monarchs and can be seen exhibiting traits and behaviors expected of someone of that status. We have also seen a few who have put their own selfish agenda ahead of the needs of the country and its people.
Some of the most memorable queens include the Red Queen from "Alice in Wonderland," Padme Amidala from the "Star Wars" franchise, Queen Clarisse Renaldi from "The Princess Diaries" movies, Elsa the Snow Queen from the animated film "Frozen" and Arwen from "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy.
