MEDIEVAL TITLES, POSITIONS, TRADES, AND CLASSES
Queen Regents are female monarchs who reign in their own right. They possess sovereign powers and are of higher rank than their King Consorts. And, vice versa, Queen Consorts share her husband’s rank, but does not hold much political or military power. Queen Dowagers are windows of a king, and Queen Mothers are dowagers who are also mothers of a reigning sovereign.
