"Monster Queens" in Literature, Television, and Film
   
   "Monster Queens" may be any female rulers associated with monsters or monstrosity. Whether they be literal monsters, non-human, or humans with monstrous inner natures, thus metaphorical ones (examples of "monster queens" might include Akasha, Queen of the Vampires, in Anne Rice's Queen of the Damned or Bavmorda, in George Lucas's Willow ), monstrous or "monster queens" figure significantly in our literature and popular culture. Topics related to these characters might include the following issues or areas: androgyny, femininity, gender and power, female appropriation of male roles, and ruler-subject relations.
