    A queen / the queen

    I am the queen.
    I am a queen.
    I am queen.

    What's the difference and which is correct?

    Also, isn't the movie title "I am legend" grammatically wrong? Shouldn't there be "a" or "the" before "legend" as "legend" is a noun?

    Thank you!

    Re: A queen / the queen

    "I am a queen" allows for the existence of other queens (in other lands). "I am the queen" or "I am queen" means there is only one queen in this land, and I am it.
