The House of Windsor is the name taken in 1917 by the House of Saxe-Coburg Gotha during World War I. They have ruled the United Kingdon of Great Britain and Ireland since 1901, and since 1922 the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The Kindom of England ceased to exist with the Act of Union of 1707, so there has never been a Windsor monarch of England.

A Queen may be a monarch, or may be the wife of a King, in which case she does not reign or rule. Britain did have a Queen (Mary) during WW1, but she was not the monarch; her husband ( King George V ) was.
