Queen City is a city which is the largest in a country, state, province, or territory, but which is not the capital. For example, the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, is larger than the state of North Carolina’s capital of Raleigh. Some cities which fit this description are rarely referred to as "queen cities," while for others it has become commonplace to speak of them by this nickname. The term may refer to:
