In Portugal, during king D.Manuel II's reign there were two dowger queens, his mother Queen Amélia and grand mother Queen Maria Pia.
This was precisely the scenario I was wondering about, and it seems your example fits it perfectly: the new king in question had no queen consort. So my question is: which of the two dowager queens outranked the other?
