Why the obsession with princesses? Be a queen!

Thanks to Disney many little girls want to be a princess. They want to be a part of a fairy tale and be the sing songy girl who talks to blue birds. My question is this. Why? What is it about them that makes everyone want to be them? And why does no one want to be a queen? Umm hello, queens have more power.

Queens can be just as glamorous as the princess.  They have more responsibility but, the kingdom is theirs. Queens are also influential and some have just as intriguing stories.

Real queens like Hatcheptsut, Cleopatra, Nefertiti, Queen Ti(who was a commoner in ancient Egypt) , Elizabeth , Gwynivere, Victoria, as well as others. Their stories are full of the love story, greatness, and accomplishments.  If no one wanted to know more couldn't Disney make up some?
Why settle for being just a princess?
