%%* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind''
%%** The goddess Azura may also count, though the 'goodness' part is highly debatable, as with any other Daedra, who are BlueAndOrangeMorality at best. Yes, Morrowind is [[GreyAndGrayMorality like that]].
%%** Barenziah also counts, if her unofficial biography (implied to be written and published by her) is any indication.
%%** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' had Elisif the Fair, whose title actually is High Queen of Skyrim, though it only becomes official after the Legion wins the Civil War. She strongly opposes Ulfric Stormcloak since he killed her husband Torygg in a duel of debatable officialism and seeks to become the High King of Skyrim.
* For ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'', Queen Ayrenn, queen of the High Elves and founder of the first Aldmeri Dominion. She does not possess any of the extreme FantasticRacism that many of her predecessors (or [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim future successors]]) cling to, viewing her Wood Elf and Khajiit allies as well as her underlings as valued partners and equals, and while she is opposed to a human-dominated Tamriel, she would ultimately prefer peace and co-existence with humanity over conflict.

portrayed as such in her [[HistoricalHeroUpgrade official biography]], ''[[http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Biography_of_Queen_Barenziah Biography of Queen Barenziah]]'', as well as in Imperial and Tribunal Temple propaganda. In those, she possesses beauty and goodness of the highest order, and exudes loyalty to the Empire with her every word and action. However, it is subverted and ''heavily'' deconstructed in her "unofficial" biography, ''[[http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:The_Real_Barenziah The Real Barenziah]]''. It reveals that in her youth as LostOrphanedRoyalty, she got into all sorts of adventures that would be unbecoming of a Queen, including spending time as TheArtfulDodger (as a member of the ThievesGuild no less) and engaging in TheOldestProfession for a time. She had some [[RulingFamilyMassacre extremely]] [[PuppetKing negative]] [[GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion experiences]] when dealing with Tiber Septim and his Empire, and any loyalty to it came out of [[HappilyMarried love for her husband]], Symmachus, a retired Imperial Legion General, or because the Empire was the "Gray" in a GrayAndBlackMorality scenario. Naturally, ''The Real Barenziah'' version of events is denied by the official Imperial histories and the Dunmeri Tribunal Temple, who wanted to put the author to death for heresy, but Barenziah also counts, if her unofficial biography (implied herself is said to be written have enjoyed the book, befriended the author, and published by her) is any indication.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle of Ages]]'' has Queen Ambi. While she is a GodSaveUsFromTheQueen in the game, that only started after she was first [[EvilChancellor manipulated]] and then [[DemonicPossession possessed]] by [[BigBad Veran]]. Conversations with her subjects reveal that she was a benevolent and kind queen before Nayru's arrival.

** 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. Sansa also stand up to the Hound without once losing her resolve. As of Season 6, she plans to become this by retaking Winterfell and using the Stark name to lead an army against the North's enemies and kill Ramsay Bolton with her brother Jon by her side. She is now the Lady of Winterfell.
** Daenerys likes to see herself as this and tries her best to make it true and this is what Jorah believes she could be. However, she has a more nuanced understanding over time. She tells Tyrion that if she returns to Westeros she wants to change and abolish the feudal power and that she wants to revise the system in favor of the poor rather than the aristocrats. She also wants to break from her family as well, seeing them as being just as bad as the other houses.
