TheKingdom: A lovely, wealthy country ruled by [[TheGoodKing a benevolent king]], [[TheWisePrince a wise prince]], and [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses a fair princess]] [[HundredPercentAdorationRating loved by the populace]]. But what's that? There's a ''queen''? Oh brother, we're in trouble.

If the evil queen is in charge of a HiveMind, she is by definition a HiveQueen. Also overlaps with {{Matriarchy}} (particularly the Straw Matriarchy) and sometimes EvilMatriarch. In terms of the ranks of AuthorityTropes, the tropes that are equal are TheHighQueen (her SisterTrope and GoodCounterpart), TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask, SheIsTheKing, TheGoodKing and PresidentEvil. The next step up is TheEmperor. Also compare TheCaligula.

** Shogun Tsunayoshi (a GenderFlip of the RealLife Tsunayoshi) is seen as this in due to the economy tanking, her very unpopular Edicts for Compassion for Living Beings (which made it a crime to harm dogs, who ran wild and brought disease), her equally unpopular ruling on The47Ronin's actions (compounded by the fact that they were mostly men in a Japan where the male population was only a quarter of the female population), being surrounded by ineffective councilors, hoarding men to serve as her concubines even after she was past the age to conceive, and finally delaying her decision on who to name her heir because her father disagreed with the popular choice on the grounds that she was the granddaughter of his hated rival.

* Isabella of France, known as the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast She-Wolf of France]], was a mix of this and a BadassPrincess. Living for years as a pious and dutiful queen consort to [[AmbiguouslyGay Edward II of England]], she finally got fed up with his constant promotion of his favorites and his general incompetency. She left the country, gathered her own troops and [[GoodAdulteryBadAdultery her own lover, Roger Mortimer,]] and invaded England. She quickly had her opponents murdered--one had his head brought to her--and then [[MurderTheHypotenuse brutally executed her husband's favorite Hugh Despenser.]] She then deposed her husband and placed her son, Edward III, on the throne and acted as regent. To round out the saga, she then had her husband secretly killed, in a [[CruelAndUnusualDeath legendarily horrific manner.]]
