The list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls022055516/
This list is about mostly fictional female characters* with titles before the start of the film. Most preferably of nobility or royalty, but Dr., First Lady, Professor, and such can be considered. The word “Lady” itself is considered a title of nobility equal to “Sir” for a knight. Which is your favorite character?

Talk about the selections here.

*Some are real historical people mentioned in fictional stories.

See Jessica. I had told you that I can fill this one up easily. And they are all from movies. The ones with historical people were hard because I didn’t know if some were historical biographies or not. So for them, I deliberately chose ones with historical fiction and romances that I knew were fictional.

Is. If you haven’t seen “The Mudlark”, see it. It is good.

That sounds like the beginning of a part 2 list. Added when I get done with my chores. And that list will start to include tv and the other titles mentioned in description. But nobility and royalty will have a preference until they run out. Remember Det. Is a title too.

Isn't Madame just the same thing as Mrs? Maybe ElMo has some insight into the French.

You could probably make a whole poll with just Queen...

There's a bunch here: https://www.imdb.com/poll/eIu-FwgTLRs

No, Madame is formal protocol of a woman if the first name is not known. Also Madame is used for the wives of political office holders, nonhereditary knighthood, or the woman holds office herself, like Madam President, Madam Speaker*, and Madame Justice.
*Both Parlement and Congress use that one.
The term literally means “My lady”.
I have to remember Madam Bovery

The link to the second list doesn't work, but I think you can remove it altogether. If the second list were to be published you can link the poll instead.

Try it now. I had accidentally pasted the url to the edit page of that list to which only I and I think the admins could see . The right url is there now. https://www.imdb.com/list/ls022013525/
