* 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.

* In ''HisDarkMaterials'' Serafina Pekkala is the Queen of the Witches of Lake Inara. She is a wise and benevolent ruler, as well as very helpful to the protagonists across all three books.

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]].

* ''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. 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 Rasmay Bolton with her brother Jon by her side.

* Lady Galadriel in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings,'' though technically [[JustTheFirstCitizen never a queen]]. Explained by her having seen the faces of the Angels, which grants a greater presence; having one of the Three Rings; and being older than ''[[TimeAbyss the sun itself]]'', and thus possessing the wisdom of ''many, many'': about seven or eight millennia. Surprise surprise, she's played by Cate Blanchett mentioned above in Peter Jackson's film.

* ''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.]]
