* In Creator/RobertEHoward's Literature/ConanTheBarbarian story "Literature/AWitchShallBeBorn", Salome as the FakeKing. All the worse in that the sister whose throne she usurped was the ReasonableAuthorityFigure. Some of her atrocities include raising taxes so high that rich and poor alike are starved, disbanding the royal guard and replacing them with cruel mercenaries who are given free reign to rape and brutalize, killing men of fighting age to prevent any possible rebellions, forcing women old and young to participate in degrading orgies, and feeding hundreds of innocent people to her pet monster.

* Saint Bridget of Sweden was a 13th century nun, who technically wielded more power than the queen. She got the notion that a crusade against the Russians were in order and king Magnus Erikkson agreed. However, Bridget advised him to not attack straight away, but instead wait for a few years. In that way [[InsaneTrollLogic "the Russians will have time to committ more sins. And as such, their suffering in hell will be ten times greater."]]

** Cersei is much like her book version in that she is ''not'' a pleasant person and shows a snobbish disdain and a lack of consideration for the common people and has groomed Joffrey to follow in her footsteps. In "You Win or You Die", she orchestrates a HuntingAccident for Robert. Tyrion initially assumes it was her who gave the order for the purge of Robert's bastard children, and she doesn't admit that it was something Joffrey ''really'' shouldn't have done. This only gotten worse now that the [[OvertookTheManga series overtook the books]]: [[spoiler: she used wildfire to blow up the Sept of Baelor while the High Sparrow, her uncle, her cousin, and her in-laws were inside to avoid being held accountable for her previous crimes. This caused massive amounts of damage to King's Landing. She's then rather callous when her last remaining child kills himself because of this. The season ends with her being crowned sole Queen of Westeros. Keep in mind her brother killed a previous king because he merely ''threatened'' to do this, and he's most certainly ''not'' happy that his sister has done this. Later when the Army of the Dead start marching south, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen ask her to [[EnemyMine fight with them]] and she decides that she would rather lie to their faces and wait for them all to kill each other than [[WeAreStrugglingTogether help prevent]] TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. She even goes so far as to say that she doesn't care about bettering her country or the world and entertains the idea of getting on a boat and leaving everyone else to die. [[SarcasmMode Real nice attitude for a monarch to have.]]]]

*** We get a taste of what her reign would be like in Part 2 of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E26TheCutieRemarkPart2 The Cutie Re-Mark]]. While we don't get to see any civilian ponies(we see Rarity maintaining her castle and Rainbow Dash working as a guard pony, but that's it), the fact that the castle welcomes tourists at times and there are still living plants despite Nightmare Moon reigning for years at this point means it [[DownplayedTrope probably isn't as bad as we immediately assumed it'd be.]]

* The White Queen in ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign''. Most see her as a benevolent existence, but this couldn't be further from the truth. She doesn't care about anyone in the entire universe except for the main character Kyousuke... and doesn't make things easy for him, either. She expresses her "love" for him by deliberately dragging him into dangerous situations, often attacking him herself.

* Lady Margaret and Queen Skillya, the queens of the glukkon and slig races, are these in the ''[[VideoGame/{{Oddworld}} Oddworld]]'' series. [[BiggerBad Lady Margaret]] is the leader of the Magog Cartel, the organization responsible for the horrifying atrocities throughout the games, and Queen Skillya beats the sligs as children so they grow up to be cruel sadists before hiring them off as low cost security to the Magog. Incidentally, they both also qualify as [[EvilMatriarch Evil Matriarchs]], as the glukkons and sligs are both [[BeePeople eusocial]] species, meaning that the two queens are the mothers of most of their populations.
