She also wants to break from her family as well, seeing them as being just as bad as the other houses.

--> '''Tyrion:''' It's a beautiful dream, stopping the wheel. You're not the first person who's ever dreamt it.
--> '''Daenerys:''' I'm not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to ''break'' the wheel.

%%* Elizabeth I of England was this in RealLife (as noted below in that category), but various cinematic representations of her don't always fit the bill. One which very much does is her portrayal by Creator/CateBlanchett in ''[[Film/{{Elizabeth}} Elizabeth: The Golden Age]]''.



* Discussed in ''Film/{{Elizabeth}}'' (see the above page quote) when Sir Walsingham coaches the young Queen Elizabeth I in how to win the love and devotion of her divided people. The end sequence of the film shows Elizabeth 'remaking' herself as a virgin to better embody the trope, and it seems to work as in the sequel ''Elizabeth: The Golden Age'', the older Elizabeth is shown as being a great and powerful Queen who is beloved and almost treated as a deity by a majority of her subjects.



* Lady Galadriel in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings,'' though technically [[JustTheFirstCitizen never a queen]]. She is what she is due to having lived in Valinor and seen the faces of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Valar]], having one of the Three Rings, and being over seven thousand years old and thus older than ''[[TimeAbyss the sun itself]]'', and thus possessing the wisdom of a very, ''very'' long life.

In the film adaptions, she is played by Creator/CateBlanchett as a beautiful, ethereal, elegant and supremely powerful leader who definitely embodies the trope.
