A portrait of Queen Elizabeth I

A queen (regina in Latin) is a female monarch who is either wedded to a king (called a queen consort) or a sovereign in her own right (called a queen regnant). Notable examples of medieval queens regnant include Theresa of Portugal, first sovereign of independent Portugal, and Margaret I of Denmark, who founded the Kalmar Union and ruled over Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
