* In ''{{Temeraire}}'', the Tswana society resolves around ancestor worship, and they practice telling stories of deceased loved ones to dragon eggs, so that the dragons are born as reincarnations of great leaders. This has led to their entire empire being led by a young female dragon who is the "reincarnation" of their last king.

* In the {{Dragaera}} novels, members of aristocratic Houses are broadly referred to as "____lords" (Dragonlord, Dzurlord, etc) regardless of gender, and the Warlord may be of either sex. Averted with noble titles such as Duke, Count, or Empress, which do get adjusted for gender of their incumbent.

* [[spoiler:Mukuro]] is one the Three Kings in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', [[spoiler:Mukuro]] is one of the Three Kings, qualifying both as having a male title while being openly a woman and the disguise: she doesn't hide she's a woman, it's just that only her most trusted warriors and the other two Kings have ever seen her face, that she keeps hidden under a mummy-like hood when in public to create an aura of mystery and fear around herself. Hence everyone calling her and her rivals the Three Kings... And the youkai being shocked when she finally ditched the disguise in public.

** Because the records from the end of the 18th Dynasty are so fragmented due to attempts to obliterate Akhenaten and his family, there was serious speculation for a time that the pharoah Smenkhkare was Akhenaten's widow Nefertiti ruling as a male. Today, they are pretty sure that Nefertiti ruled as a woman, and Smenkhkare was a separate person who took the throne after her. The confusion arose partly because they both used the throne name Ankh-kheperu-re (Life and Transfiguration of Ra).



* Elagabalus was a third century Roman emperor who much to the dismay of his subjects preferred to be referred to as "empress", and who would (probably) be considered transsexual by today's standards.

* In the ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, starting partway through the ''Mage Winds'' trilogy the High Priest of Vkandis and ruler of the theocracy of Karse is a woman named Solaris, whose title is "''Son'' of the Sun". Having been handpicked very publicly for the position by Vkandis himself seems to have thoroughly overcome the gender barrier that previously existed with regards to the role, but the terminology remains unchanged.

* In Creator/MaryRenault's ''Literature/TheKingMustDie'', the Amazon leader Hippolyta speaks with Theseus saying it's "one king to another." He agrees but says "but you're a queen." She says no, she's a king, a woman king. When he falls in love with her, it's as equals.

* PlayedWith on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark:'' during the Black Friday three-parter Kenny's character is a girl, though of course everyone knows he's really a boy. He insists on being called a "princess," but Cartman, not wanting to share authority with him, only allows him to take the title "Lady [=McCormick=]." [[spoiler:This is at least part of the reason that he betrays the X-Box players for the PS4 supporters]]. See above under "Video Games."
