Live Poll: Queens, But Not Exactly Royalty

The list page: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls044449127/
In the movies and in fiction, the title or word “Queen” has been used in a variety of ways as parts of songs, fictional titles and some things not human. We may even used the names of real historical Queens as long as they are long dead. (Let’s leave the name of Queen Elizabeth the 2nd out of this - she might get offended at being included in this group.) Which [b][i]TYPE[/i][/b] of queen is your favorite?
If you have a name of a movie queen to suggest, you can have her shout “Off with her head” here. Yeah, that is a reference to a classic line from one of these characters. Just remember to have fun with this and DO NOT TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY.

Good one.
A few typos:

#13: There are so many famous male stars in this category, (including some who you would think wouldn’t, but did) that this can be a poll of its own.
#23: like the Borg Queen.
#33: singer, hip-hop, actress and tv talk show hostess.

'Good idea and list. There are a lot of good choices so it'll be tough but I'll probably vote for the the bus in 'Priscilla, Queen of the Dessert.' 

May I suggest a few edits to the beginning of the intro? ('Cool intro, btw; edits are below in bold.)

In the movies, in fictional literature, and in real life, the title or word “Queen” has been used in a variety of ways as names of people outside of royalty, places, bands, and some things not human. We may even use the names of real historical Queens as long as they are long dead. 

(You use a lot of real life examples like beauty queens, the borough of Queens in NYC, drag queens, and the band so that's why I'd include "real life." I changed "fiction" only because I was assuming you meant in literature because movies are often fictional. If that's not what you meant, though, something like "In the movies and in real life" would be great. The second part of that sentence just seemed to be a little confusing so that's why I suggested edits there but I certainly don't mean to rewrite that sentence: these are just suggestions but other edits could work just as well. 
The only grammatical or typographical edit is changing used to use.)
