*** Although this was actually a mistranslation, they're two separate skills in the game(with the same effect.), and the original names meant Rightful King(Marth/Male Morgan) and Rightful ''Queen''(Lucina).

* In ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'', similarly to the above example, the Queen is defined as the King's spouse. When it was realized how a woman could be King, this also paved the way for its inversion: a female King of Xanth's spouse is a male Queen.
* Creator/PiersAnthony apparently likes this trope. In the ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'', the protagonists have the unenviable job of finding a new candidate for the job of {{God}}. [[spoiler: Since "God" is just a nickname for the Incarnation of Good, the job can be filled by anyone, male or female, living or dead. The search was only hard because they ''assumed'' that God had to be male (and currently alive). Once that's resolved, the perfect candidate, a dead woman, becomes obvious.]]

* UsefulNotes/ElizabethI of England (mentioned above) also referred to herself in her speeches and writings as a "prince", as did her sister Mary I and cousin [[UsefulNotes/MaryofScotland Mary, Queen of Scots]] While it had masculine connotations even at that time, "prince" was an accepted term for a sovereign ruler regardless or sex or title (it comes from ''princeps'', a word meaning "first"). When Creator/NiccoloMachiavelli talks of "princes" in [[ThePrince Il Principe]], he's referring to anyone in a position of ultimate authority.

* Only a Magician can be King of ''Literature/{{Xanth}}''. A Magician is a magic-user of the highest power, though a female Magician is called a Sorceress. Since only men are called Magicians, only men can be King, right? Well ... at a time when Xanth ''direly'' needed a new King, someone finally realized that if a Sorceress is a "female Magician," that means Sorceresses are a ''type'' of Magician and qualified for office. (The female ruler is still a King, though. Xanth has no ruling Queens.)

* ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' has this. In this case, The King of Xanth is defined as its ruler (at least among the human inhabitants) while The Queen of Xanth is defined as the King's spouse. Turns out, [[AintNoRule they never explicitly defined the King as being male]], that had just been assumed to be the case for centuries due to the requirement that the office (which is not hereditary) has to go to a Magician. Since females with powerful magic were called Sorceresses, it was believed that they didn't qualify. Until somebody pointed out that a Sorceress is defined as a female Magician, and thus is also a Magician.
** Not that it necessarily would have been impossible to just change the rule, but in the book where they figured this out, they had to replace the king regularly and quickly until they could defeat the villain who kept putting the kings into enchanted sleep, some of the most qualified successors were female, and this way was less of a headache.

** The Tevinter titles of Magister and Archon, which denote a place in the Imperial Senate, can be assumed by men and women. Their Divine, conversely, is always male, in opposition to the Orlesian Divine, who is always female.

* In the Literature/VorkosiganSaga, some time during Barrayar's [[LostColony Time of Isolation]], a Countess was legally declared a male in order to inherit (and later had "[[NoodleIncident that]] [[HilarityEnsues bizarre lawsuit]]" about her marriage). By the time of the books, Lady Donna Vorrutyer finds a [[GenderBender modern, technological option]].
