  39. No explicit mention of queens is made till we read of the "queen of Sheba." The wives of the kings of Israel are not so designated.

In 1 Kings 11:19 , Pharaoh's wife is called "the queen," but the Hebrew word so rendered (g'birah) is simply a title of honour, denoting a royal lady, used sometimes for "queen-mother" ( 1 Kings 15:13 ; 2 Chron 15:16 ). In Cant 1 Kings 6:8 1 Kings 6:9 , the king's wives are styled "queens" (Heb. melakhoth). In the New Testament we read of the "queen of the south", i.e., Southern Arabia, Sheba ( Matthew 12:42 ; Luke 11:31 ) and the "queen of the Ethiopians" ( Acts 8:27 ), Candace. biblestudytools.com
