This is applied, as now, to one reigning in her own right, as the queen of Sheba, 2 Chronicles 9:1-12; and Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, Acts 8:27 . The title was also given to the consort of a reigning sovereign, as queen Esther; and to the queen-mother, who often had great influence at court, as Bathsheba, Jezebel, etc.
