How to use "Queen regnant" in context?
The term "queen regnant" is defined as the reigning queen of a country. Historically, in England, queens regnant have been the primary representatives of the monarchy in the country. During the early medieval period, the monarch was mainly a ceremonial figurehead with no real power. The English monarchy began to undergo significant changes during the reign of Henry VIII, who married Catherine of Aragon and gained control of the country through his marriage. Catherine's son, Edward VI, was the first king of England to be born a queen regnant. He became ruler upon his mother's death in 1553 and reigned until his death in 1553.
