* [[spoiler: Titania]] from JohnCWright's ''Literature/WarOfTheDreaming'' is this, having grace, power, serenity and beauty, as well as being a PhysicalGod. However, she is ''not'' TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask; when her lover shows up, she turns into a GenkiGirl.

* Queen Selenay and High Priest Solaris in MercedesLackey's ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' books, especially from a distance. To their closer associates, they also have a strong touch of TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask.

* The White Queen from Tim Burton's ''Film/AliceInWonderland''. Her sister (who is [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen the opposite]]) laments that she can make anything fall in love with her - even the furniture. WordOfGod says that part of this is a ruse and that she surrounds herself with bright imagery because she's too tempted by the dark side.

%%* Queen Irene of Attolia in ''[[TheQueensThief The Queen's Thief Series]]'' and Queen Helen of Eddis are both this trope, though Eddis is not beautiful but is described as almost ugly.

%%* * Queen Irene of Attolia in ''[[TheQueensThief The Queen's Thief Series]]'' and Queen Helen of Eddis are both this trope, though Eddis is not beautiful but is described as almost ugly.ugly. However, Eddis is much beloved by her subjects, who do not at all care that she is not pretty. She herself is rather insecure about this and thinks she ''should'' be beautiful to fit this trope, and wears uncomfortable, but pretty dresses to make up for her lack in beauty by increasing her elegance and regal bearing.

%%* Many ladies like this are seen in FireEmblem:

* [[spoiler: Xelha]] from ''BatenKaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean'' fits this trope quite well, although her kindness comes more from her role as [[spoiler: WhiteMagicianGirl]].
** Also, Queen Corellia of Anuenue. Not quite as badass as [[spoiler:Xelha]], but still very much a ReasonableAuthorityFigure.

* Queen Aurala of Aundair in ''TabletopGame/{{Eberron}}'' is ([[CharacterAlignment literally]]) [[NeutralGood good]], wise, compassionate, and all kinds of positive traits. The commoners and nobles both love her because she genuinely wants the best for the nation and has the ability to make it happen. Beyond its own borders, Aundair is also diplomatically active, an ardent supporter of the Treaty of Thronehold that ended the Last War which wracked the continent for a century. However... Aurala also believes a new war is inevitable since nobody came out of the prior one truly satisfied. She is [[SilkHidingSteel building up the military in secret and already planning her first strikes]] - her desire to protect her realm and belief in her own fitness to rule is turning into a FatalFlaw which may lead her to reignite the war because she thinks she should be High Queen of the continent.

* Queen Ehlana in the ''{{Elenium}}'' and ''Tamuli'' trilogies by Creator/DavidEddings. At the beginning she is a DamselInDistress that was poisoned and put into sleep in crystal to keep her alive until the heroes find a cure. When she is finally awakened she [[spoiler:plots revenge against the one who poisoned her, easily {{Batman Gambit}}s a church into choosing her own candidate for a pope, lectures another country's king on how to be a true MagnificentBastard]]... She is on the good side, don't worry.

* Even before the [[PowerIncontinence plot got started]], Queen Elsa from ''{{Disney/Frozen}}'' fit the profile. She deliberately cultivates a calm demeanor and royal aloofness as part of controlling her powers, and she cares about the well-being of her sister and subjects to the point of being willing to exile herself to protect them [[spoiler:although it doesn't last long, since her exile didn't fix anything]]. She's also the first official Disney Princess[[note]]Kida from ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'' and Nala from ''Disney/TheLionKing'' also became Queens but they aren't in the line[[/note]] to become a Queen in her film.

%%** Glinda the Good is this, as well. In the books, she's a lot more Galadriel than Billie Burke (and would NEVER wear pink). Tolkien historians have even noted how much Galadriel resembles Glinda (They're pretty much the same character), but Tolkien wasn't lifting from Baum. They were both just drawing from the same Fairy Queen archetype.

Added DiffLines:

* Bluestar from ''Literature/WarriorCats'' is treated this way, though Clans have no monarchy so she is officially just their [[TheLeader leader]]. She is a regal blue-furred cat with IcyBlueEyes who leads Thunderclan with wisdom and dignity. She is a BrokenBird but that doesn't stop her from being the BigGood. [[spoiler:That is, until Tigerclaw's betrayal causes her to undergo a SanitySlippage]].
