A queen or empress regnant is a woman who reigns as queen or empress in her own right, rather than as consort to a king or emperor. Queen Elizabeth II is an example. More generally, "regnant" can be used as a synonym for "reigning." The word should not be confused with the similar-sounding "regent."
