    she is (the) Queen of over a dozen countries

    Can we use 'the' in this sentence as well as no article before 'Queen'?
    Not including the United Kingdom,
    she is (the) Queen of over a dozen countries, including Canada, New Zealand and Australia.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)
