There was supposed to be a poll with a list of queens, but it didn't come through. Oh well. Just ignore the thread.

No list needed. Everyone knows the correct gay answer is the fabulous Margrethe of Denmark.

Queen christina of Sweden!
Dykiest dyke who ever dyked, she was the heir to the then powerful throne of Sweden, then a power player in the war of religions seen in Europe at that time. Daddy was powerful and protestant, she was taken with wearing men's garb and a secret Catholic. When she became queen she abdicated, declaired herself a Catholic and supposedly walked to the Vatican on her knees to become confirmed.
She then set up one of the most eccentric and gayest artist salons that Rome had ever seen

Elizabeth of Austria - Sissi (as in those 50s Romy Schneider films), oh, she was an Empress ! She had a great life until assassinated - got tired of the Hungarian court and travelled a lot, built her own palace in Corfu, took up horse-riding etc. she must had have some lovers .....

Another empress: Soraya - the first wife of the Shah of Iran, back in the 50s - she could not produce an heir so he had to divorce her but she got a handsome payoff and lived the lush life in Italy, even appearing in a few films and was one of those society names always in the papers. Wonder what happened to her ....

You'd think she'd enjoy all the fruits of Mittel European royal privilege including lovers, but that was not the case with poor Sissi -- she became ultra religious and her journeys were all pilgrimages and her companions were all priests and nuns.
And no, I don't think they were there for any funny (or fun) business.

I posted that first comment on Sissi (Empress of Austria). Her palace in Corfu is now a gambling casino, I visited it some years ago - one can visit her private apartments and her own chapel where she prayed...%0D %0D Queen Farah Dibah is a good name too - the wife the Shah of Iran took after he divorced Soraya.

Queen Margrethe is in London for the opening ceremonies of the Olympics.
The Danes have made the biggest splash, with much of the royal family arriving Thursday night on the River Thames aboard the royal yacht Dannebrog, a 257-foot-long (78-meter-long) luxury cruiser that serves as the Queen's official residence on tours abroad.
Also aboard were the queen's husband, Prince Consort Henrik; Frederik's Australian wife Crown Princess Mary, whom he met while attending the 2000 Games in Sydney; and their four young children, Prince Christian, Princess Isabella and the twins, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.
Crown Prince Frederik got in on the action a day early, carrying the Olympic torch Thursday through the west London neighborhood of Notting Hill. The 44-year-old heir to the Danish throne, who is also Denmark's member on the International Olympic Committee and an avid marathon runner, last carried the torch en route to the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway.

My personal fav is Queen Geraldine of Albania.
Born in Budapest, her mother was an American socialite from Virginia,father an Hungarian Count, raised in Vienna during the waning days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Her father died, leaving family almost penniless. Her family's fortune spent, Geraldine earned a living as a shorthand typist. She also worked in the gift shop of the Budapest National Museum, where her uncle was the director.
Geraldine was introduced to King Zog I in December 1937, after his sister had approached Geraldine on behalf of the monarch. The King had seen the young Hungarian woman's photograph. She went to Albania and within days the couple were engaged to be married. Known as the "White Rose of Hungary", Geraldine was raised to royal status as Princess Geraldine of Albania prior to her wedding.
Zog's rule was cut short by the Italian invasion of Albania in April 1939, and the family fled the country into exile. From April 1939, Geraldine and Zog lived fled Albania via Greece and Turkey, and settled in France, and then in the United Kingdom. They lived in the Ritz Hotel, London, at Ascot and, for most of the war, at Parmoor House, Frieth, Buckinghamshire. In 1946 they went to Egypt, and then in 1952 to France. King Zog I died in Hauts-de-Seine, France, in 1961 and their son, Crown Prince Leka, was proclaimed King Leka I by the royalist government in exile. Following this, the Royal Family moved to Spain, Rhodesia and then South Africa.
In June 2002, Geraldine returned from South Africa to live in Albania, after the law was changed to allow her to do so. Died in 2005 age 87 in Tirana, received a state funereal in a country that adored her, even though the mere mention of the former monarchy was outlawed during communist rule.
Amazing life story, absolutely gorgeous, her story would make an great movie movie.
