Re: Unmarried queens

What queens in royal history, European or otherwise, never married? It goes without saying that this discussion is restricted to queens REGNANT.
Only two come to my mind, off the top of my head: Queen Elizabeth I Tudor of England and her namesake, Empress Elizabeth Romanov of Russia.

Queen Christina of Sweden
And although not a Queen but reigning grand duchess of Luxembourg Marie Adélaïde

Another is Margaret, Queen of Scots, popularly known as the Maid of Norway. She was however only seven when she died
