I do not believe there's any reference to an elven-queen in the Hobbit. There is an Elf King - Thranduil - but Bilbo is never trapped by him. Bilbo wears his invisibility ring and wanders through Thranduil's halls for over a week, stealing food and plotting to break the dwarves out of the king's dungeons. Bilbo is never trapped except by his loyalty to his companions. The text clearly states that Bilbo is capable of leaving the Elf King's halls at will and is described as following parties of elves out Into the Woods repeatedly: "Magic shut the gate, but he could sometimes get out, if he was quick" and "if Bilbo was very nimble, he could slip out just behind [the elves]; though it was a dangerous thing to do."
