Queen (Japanese: クィーン, 女王 Queen) is the name of several separate classes appearing in the Fire Emblem series. Each one occupies a position of royalty, and few units ever use this class.

In Genealogy of the Holy War, the Queen class is a very rare class exclusively used by two units; Hilda, Queen of Friege, and Indra, the arena champion of Chapter 10. The class uses fire, thunder, and wind magic, as well as staves.

In The Sacred Stones, it is a class exclusive to Ismaire as an NPC, the queen of Jehanna. The class is not playable and is only present for a single turn; as such, the stats the class has aren’t very relevant, and mainly serve to foreshadow her identity as a former Swordmaster and Joshua's mother. When Ismaire becomes playable in the Creature Campaign, she instead uses the Swordmaster class, though the queen class she has earlier can also use swords due to her personal weapon levels rather than the class having the ability to use swords, but this is never put to use in gameplay as NPC Ismaire has no weapons or items, and again mainly serves as foreshadowing.

The latest appearance of the class is in Radiant Dawn, as the personal class of Elincia, crowned queen after the events of Path of Radiance, in which she used the Princess Crimea class. She wields swords and staves, and flies on a pegasus, which gives her the Canto skill; additionally, it is counted as a third-tier class, with the special skill Stun. Generally Elincia as a queen is a fairly strong fighter, but surely not excellent in combat.

The flexibility of the "Queen" name lends itself not to its role in gameplay but its role in storylines. Fire Emblem, being a fantasy series, often includes the conflicts of warring kingdoms, most of which are monarchies; as such, the existence of the Queen class is often necessary for narrative scenes and battle.

  • In the coding of the English release of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, there are two unused classes known as "Queen." Both are unused, though it later appears in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones as Ismaire's NPC class. In The Blazing Blade it presumably would have belonged to Hellene or Eleanora, though Hellene never appears on a map, and Eleanora instead is a Bishop. The other queen is mistranslated, being "Princess" in the Japanese version, that most likely would have been used by Guinivere. Queen (女王 joō) and princess (王女 ōjo) are very similar in Japanese, just with the kanji switched around.
    • In the Japanese version of The Sacred Stones, the second "Queen" class, which was called "Princess" (王女) in The Blazing Blade, is called "Queen" (女王) instead, and shares the same help description.
