Uh, no, not really. It means the most important 19th century British queen, who actually ruled as queen, as opposed to just being the King's husband. That's Victoria.

Lovely quiz. It might be prudent to alter the Drag Queen clue. A Drag Queen is a specific job for entertainment, but is often used as a derogatory term towards transvestites. It's not a big issues since I'm sure most people know the difference but it's still important to be clear. Thank you :-)

Catherine was an empress not a queen. Don't ask me what's the difference between her empire and the one that Victoria ruled, but nonetheless she was never regarded as a queen.

To me the queen of Ethiopia clue/answer seems almost self refuting. If she's the queen of Sheba... she is not the queen of Ethiopia. Unless she wore two crowns which I guess is possible. But that's not the case here. Ethiopia did not exist at the time that this character, quite probably fictional, existed. And there is a lot of controversy over where exactly this "Sheba" was, or even if it existed. I have visited the site of the alleged Queen of Sheba's palace in Ethiopia. But the evidence is very spotty. If there even was a Sheba, it might have been a Nubian or Nabatean kingdom somewhere in central/western Arabia or northeast Africa. It might have been somewhere around present-day Ethiopia, Djibouti, or Somalia.. some have theorized it was the same southern kingdom the Egyptians called "Punt" and did trade with. I think most scholars believe it was probably in Yemen. But nobody actually knows.

Ethiopian tradition holds that this queen was impregnated by a Jewish king, as in the Biblical story, and then gave birth to the first Jewish emperor of Ethiopia. The Beta Israel tribe of Jewish Ethiopians trace their lineage all the way back to this. Most of them were evacuated to Israel from Sudan and Ethiopia in the 80s and 90s.

Sheba was a place in Yemen. Also, this was three thousand years ago. To say that it's wrong because she can't possibly be the queen of Ethiopia is just stupid - after all, by such logic, the Holy Roman Empire, the Roman Empire, the Alexandrian Empire, and the Byzantine Empire are all fiction because their rulers didn't also wear the crowns of the countries that are now where their kingdoms were.

Was Augustus Caesar the emperor of Italy? But that's not really equivalent. We know he was real. Was King Arthur the king of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland? That's still not equivalent because even if Arthur wasn't real we at least know for a fact where he was from.

Because at school I was taught that if the queen was the reigning monarch then her husband is called prince so as to not outrank her, exactly like we have in the UK right now

Yes, the wife of a king is called a queen - but the type of queen is queen consort as opposed to a queen regnant (which we have now, and she has a prince consort).

A couple of these will suddenly be wrong when the queen dies - the national anthem will immediately become God Save the King, and the phrase will immediately become the King's English.
