* Selene from Anime/SallyTheWitch, princess of the Land of Ice that is near Astoria. A whole episode is centered on her and Sally's friendship [[spoiler: and how both girls must fight against Selene's EvilUncle who wants to stop her AwesomeMomentOfCrowning.]]



* Reiha from the ''Manga/VampirePrincessMiyu'' manga.



* Oyuki, quite literally, in UruseiYatsura.



* Queen Freya of Frigia in ''ComicStrip/FlashGordon''.



* Snowbird from ''ComicBook/AlphaFlight'' is a regal Inuit demigoddess from Canada's northern territories. She has no ice powers, but her ability to [[{{Animorphism}} turn into a white-colored version of any animal]]--with a preference for those from the Arctic--is a unique take on this trope.
* Mizumi, the Queen of Moraine, in ''Return to Film/{{Labyrinth}}''.
* Tora Olafsdotter AKA Ice of ''DCComics'' is a princess and has, you guessed it, ice powers.



* Queen Elsa in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', an adaptation of Andersen's ''Literature/TheSnowQueen''. She was born with [[AnIcePerson ice powers]] and becomes queen of Arendelle at age 21, due to her parents death at sea three years prior. The film takes place on her coronation day. In [[WhatCouldHaveBeen earlier scripts]] where Elsa was the BigBad she even refers to herself as "the Snow Queen" when she [[ThatManIsDead abandons her past life]]. She dresses in a blue dress made of ice, though very early unused designs had her PrettyInMink (even ''live'' mink in one design).

* Queen Elsa in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', an adaptation of Andersen's ''Literature/TheSnowQueen''. She was born with [[AnIcePerson ''Literature/TheSnowQueen'', is actually a surprising {{Aversion}}. Despite having many of the trappings of this trope ([[AnIcePerson ice powers]] and becomes queen powers]], an ice palace she built for herself on a whim, a sparkly light blue dress ''made of Arendelle at age 21, due to her parents death at sea three years prior. The film takes place on her coronation day. In ice''), in the final version of the movie she never actually adopts the moniker of the Snow Queen. She's just Queen Elsa of Arendelle. (Although in [[WhatCouldHaveBeen earlier early draft scripts]] where Elsa was the BigBad BigBad, she even refers to herself as "the Snow Queen" as a MeaningfulNameChange when she [[ThatManIsDead abandons her past life]]. She dresses in a blue dress made of ice, though very early unused designs had her PrettyInMink (even ''live'' mink in one design).life]].)



* Stormella from ''WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer: TheMovie'' is the BigBad. [[spoiler:She undergoes a HeelFaceTurn in the end.]]



* The White Witch in ''Literature/TheLionThe WitchAndTheWardrobe'' doesn't quite fit this in her title, but the fact that she both declares herself queen and covers the land in winter makes up for it.
* The Norn queen Utuk'ku from ''Literature/MemorySorrowAndThorn''.

to:

* The White Witch in ''Literature/TheLionThe WitchAndTheWardrobe'' doesn't quite fit this is a borderline example in her terms of title, but the fact that she both declares herself queen and covers the land in winter makes up for it.

it.



* Queen Selenay of the Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar series wears white exclusively -- but this is justified since she, like all Heralds, wears white on duty. In one story set during her early days on the throne, she commissions a Winter Festival to distract her from her mourning for her father.
** Mercedes Lackey also has two examples from her ''Literature/ElementalMasters'' and ''Literature/TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms'' series. Both are based on The Snow Queen, and the characters are Cordelia and unsurprisingly, The Snow Queen. (In the latter book there are actually ''two'' Snow Queens -- one a Fairy Godmother playing the part and the other a straight example).
* Khione from ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'' - she looks like the White Witch [[spoiler:and is just as nasty]].
** Boreas (her father) and Calais and Zethes (her brothers) are rare male versions of this.
*** Boreas was, in Myth/ClassicalMythology, the North Wind [[ElementalEmbodiment personified]], so that counts as well.



* In ''Literature/TheJewelKingdom'', Demetria, one of four princesses with an [[ElementalEmbodiment elemental theme]], is winter\air. Also a heroine, which may be slightly predictable given that she stars in a children's series.



** On a similar note were the Night's King and his Queen of legend from the Nightfort of the Wall during the Age of Legend where long winters were very dark winters. And, they both fulfilled the "spooky and cold witchcraft" part of the brief.



* ''Series/TinMan'' plays with this trope by having the party's first real lead on the Queen (and DG's identity) being in an ice-encased palace.



* ''Series/OnceUponATime'' makes much of this trope by featuring two of them: Ingrid the Snow Queen in sparkly white, as well as Elsa from ''{{Disney/Frozen}}'' in sparkly ice-blue.

* Tarja Turunen in her ''My Winter Storm'' album.
* Blackmore's Night "Faerie Queen" uses a lot of winter imagery describing the eponymous character.
-->''It is in her heart''\\
''As pure as winter snow''\\
''It is in her tears''\\
''Crystal raindrops fall...''
* In the MusicVideo for Tweet's [[ADateWithRosiePalms "Oops! (Oh, My!)"]] Music/MissyElliott appears as one of these.



* In ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'', being as trope-laden as possible, players are actively encouraged to make [[AnIcePerson Snowskins]] fit this trope.
** Also, the Winter Court is an actual group of changelings who represent (and feed off) sorrow. Yes, their female rulers are called Queens. (Though the book notes that many Snowskins ''don't'' join the Winter Court because they want to avoid becoming this trope.)

* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' features Ashe, an [[AnIcePerson ice magic-wielding]] archer who recently gained monarchy over her arctic homeland through a [[ArrangedMarriage self-arranged political marriage]] and has a Queen skin ([[http://ddragon.leagueoflegends.com/cdn/img/champion/splash/Ashe_4.jpg with themed dress and crown]]) to reflect it.



* One racetrack featured in ''VideoGame/MarioKart 7'' unintentionally made [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Rosalina]] one of these.



* Princess Yue of the Northern Water Tribe in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. It's downplayed in that while she fills a lot of aspects of the trope, it's treated as basically coincidental and she's relatively normal for a princess. Mostly.
