* In the Card Game "Hearts", traditional rules make the Queen of Spades into this. In a game where scoring points is bad, and every heart grants one point to anyone who collects one, the Queen of Spades in particular gives '''thirteen points''' to the unfortunate person who gets her; the sum of if you got all the hearts combined.

** Nadalia, Bride of Ash. She ''intended'' to be one, but was stymied when she discovered that the land and king she sought to claim were long gone. Though she got to sit on the throne, her victory was a hollow one. [[spoiler:Dispirited, this embodiment of Manus' solitude forsook her body and became a black fog. The idols containing fragments of her soul still await the arrival of a king that will never come.]]

** Daenerys, while starting out on the noble course to end all slavery, [[WellIntentionedExtremist very soon resorts to questionable methods.]] She's pretty [[YoungConqueror gifted in conquering cities]], but seldomly takes care of them afterwards, causing economy to crash as Daenerys ends slavery without installing a surrogate system. So far it's just ignorance or maybe lack of practical experience, but as people confront her about the trickery of politics, Daenerys brushes it off with "I'm not a politician, I'm a queen", openly disinterested in remedying the caused problems. [[spoiler: It goes worse as she cannot control her dragons who feed on the people's livestock and children - or on noblemen Daenerys feeds to them because she accuses them of helping the rebels against her, with no proof and stating that they could just as well be innocent. In the same matter, by the way, she had 163 random people crucified for killing slave children without ever investigating who of them might be guilty after all. Later, when she heads to Westeros which she claims is her rightful heirdom, she brings along her Dothraki who RapePillageAndBurn the Westerosi (who Daenerys claims are her people after all) and eventually [[KillItWithFire burns people alive]] for no other crime than that they refused to bow to her. For the opinions and interests of the local Lords, for example Jon Snow, she has little to no regard.]]

* 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.]]]]
