Poll: Queens, But Not Exactly Royalty

In the movies and in fictional literature, the title or word “Queen” has been used in a variety of ways as parts of songs, fictional titles, people outside of royalty, places, bands, and some things not human. We may even use the names of real historical Queens as long as they are long dead. (Let’s leave the name of Queen Elizabeth the 2nd out of this - she might get offended at being included in this group.) Which TYPE of queen is your favorite? If you have a name of a movie queen to suggest, you can have her shout “Off with her head” here. Yeah, that is a reference to a classic line from one of these characters. Just remember to have fun with this and DO NOT TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY.
