"Queen of Jordan" redirects here. For the "30 Rock" episode, see Queen of Jordan (30 Rock).

This is a list of the women who have been queen consort of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan since the sultanate was elevated to the status of a kingdom in 1949. As all monarchs of Jordan have been required by law to be male, there has never been a queen regnant of Jordan.

It is necessary for the king to give his wife the title of Queen after his accession and their marriage; otherwise she has only the lesser title of Princess. Only one Jordanian consort has not held the title of Queen during her marriage.
