QUEEN . The functions of a queen reigning in her own right would be identical with those of a king (wh. see). The queen as the wife of a monarch in Israel held a position of comparatively little importance, whereas that of a dowager-queen (‘queen-mother’) commanded great influence (cf. the cases of Bathsheba, Jezebel, Athaliah).
