** Rose Quartz. Her appearance and demeanor scream either "plucky princess" or "collected queen" depending on her mood. She was soft-spoken and kind, and made the decision to be a mother at the cost of her own corporeal existence. She also led a successful rebellion against Homeworld and was extremely capable of fighting with or without her sword and shield.

[[spoiler: The "queenly" part makes more sense once we discover that she's none other than Pink Diamond regenerated into a Quartz]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Daenerys shows shades of this when she rides Drogon to burn the slavers' fleet in all her queenly, regal glory. Later, she fights a third of the Lannister-Tarly forces from atop Drogon in the Battle of the Goldroad.

* Subverted with Sakura Oogami from ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa''. She's a master of martial arts and has [[TheStoic a calm demeanor]], ''extremely'' polite speech patterns (rendered as YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe in the LetsPlay) and a very high status as [[HeirToTheDojo the heir to a famous dojo]]... but considering [[LadyLooksLikeADude her]] [[HugeSchoolgirl looks]] and [[MixedMartialArts her fighting style]], Sakura is probably the least feminine-looking Lady of War ever.

Added DiffLines:

* Queen Margaret of ''Theatre/HenryVI'' famously dons armour and rides into battle from time to time. Depends on the production, but she often retains her full queenliness doing it.
* [[Theatre/{{Macbeth}} Lady Macbeth]] never quite crosses the line into fighter territory, but she remains poised and glamourous throughout while masterminding her husband's way to the thrown and [[OutDamnedSpot getting her hands dirty]].

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Jasnah Kholin, in stark contrast to [[StayInTheKitchen her culture's strict gender roles]], is completely at home on a battlefield. In ''Literature/{{Oathbringer}}'', she strides through the final battle with perfect composure, using her [[AlchemyIsMagic Soulcasting]] with casual efficiency to [[BalefulPolymorph transform enemies to smoke]], transform stone to oil and then set it on fire, or even simply [[MundaneUtility shore up holes in the walls]].

* The Israelis. The [[IsraelisWithInfraredMissiles Israeli army]] is based on ''universal'' {{conscription}}, ''including women'', and those Israeli women who have served are tough as nails.

Added DiffLines:

* [[ComicBook/ScarletWitch Wanda Maximoff]]. She is very inquisitive, controlled and elegant, and she usually tends to arrive in battle wrapped in red gowns and capes, but is also one of the most powerful superheroes in the Marvel Universe.


Added DiffLines:

* Eowyn from ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' follows in her book counterpart's footsteps of being both well versed in the manners of court as would befit a noble lady of her rank, and also a formidable warrior.

Basically, the Lady of War is a [[ActionGirl female fighter]] who retains [[ProperLady an air of grace and reserve not usually associated with violence]]. If not an actual BadassPrincess, she tends to be [[TheOjou otherwise highly placed]], or at least look and act like it. If she's not gentle-mannered she may be an AloofDarkHairedGirl or [[AlphaBitch arrogant and generally prissy]] and might become subject to a DefrostingIceQueen scenario. Often, she's simply TheStoic.

* The titular character from ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' comments how feminine [[BadAssPrincess Fiona]] looked after she kicked the butts of Robin Hood and his men. She indeed makes a good job looking graceful when doing her WaifFu.

* ''WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower'' has all the earmarks... high-born, [[ElegantWeaponForAMoreCivilizedAge sword-wielding]] ActionGirl with a calm demeanor. Unlike most Ladies of War, however, she displays a cheerful, pleasant attitude and a willingness to joke and laugh with the rest of her cast...probably due to being [[TheHero The Heroine]] of her show.
