* ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob''. Princess Voluptua pulls off this image quite well. While not especially formal in her demeanor (as most of her immediate court are [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]], she's the only one who ''doesn't'' speak in pseudo-Elizabethan highfalute), she always exudes an air of supreme confidence and competence.

* ''SuikodenV'' has Queen Arshtat, the mother of the main character. Her reign has been something of a golden age when the country had been on the verge of civil war. She is highly respected and certainly beautiful.
* Yggdra, the eponymous heroine of ''YggdraUnion'', gradually evolves into a combination of one of these and the MessianicArchetype as she matures.
* Queen Fay of OverlordII, the ruler of Light Magic creatures who serves as the {{foil}} to your EvilOverlord and his AlwaysChaoticEvil Minions. Later on during an EnemyMine situation with the Overlord [[spoiler:she sacrifices her energy to power up his ArtifactOfDoom, with the side effect of being driven insane by his dark magic, thus becoming a FallenHero and one of his Mistresses.]]

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Sansa Starts to show signs of this trope as well as ''SilkHidingSteel'' in "Blackwater", When she calms down a room full of anxious noble ladies, shortly after a drunken Cersei mentions how much she disdains it and leaves.

* In the episode "Liege Lord" of ''Series/{{Reign}}'' Lord [=McKenzie=], her late father's loyal man, believed that Queen Mary didn't care about Scotland since she has been living in the safety of France. Mary tells him about the secret clause in her wedding contract which gives Scotland to France if she dies without an heir and she cannot risk the freedom of her country. She asks him to tell everyone when he returns to Scotland. He accepts and all of his men place their swords at their Queen's feet as he kisses her hand and says that they have waited a long time for her to rise.

%%* Of Henry's six queens in ''Series/TheTudors'', Queens Catherine of Aragon, Jane Seymour and Catherine Parr fit this trope the best, all three being beautiful, self-assured, and conscious of their duties. (In comparison, Anne Boleyn is a FemmeFatale, Catherine Howard is TheDitz, and Anne of Cleves never gets the chance to technically ''become'' a High Queen).

%%* Depending on the writer and storyline Queen Hyppolita, WonderWoman's mother and ruler of Themyscira, is usually portrayed as this. Even after she is shown going bat-shit crazy and creating an elaborate GambitRoulette to humble her daughter and eliminate one of her opponents, she is eventually given an author-saving throw by going into the past and serving as the original JSA's Wonder Woman, returning and relinquishing voluntarily most of her authority to two elected amazons. %%Does not actually indicate how Hyppolita fulfills the qualities specified for TheHighQueen.

** Sansa Stark starts the series ''thinking'' that Queen Cersei Lannister is wise, kind and benevolent, being easily taken in by her beauty, grace and regal bearing. As with many other things, [[WrongGenreSavvy Sansa is dead wrong about this]], and quickly realizes [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen what Cersei is really like.]]
