Dowager Queen
A QUEEN DOWAGER, DOWAGER QUEEN or QUEEN MOTHER (compare: PRINCESS DOWAGER, DOWAGER PRINCESS or PRINCESS MOTHER) is a title or status generally held by the widow of a king. In the case of the widow of an emperor , the title of empress dowager is used. Its full meaning is clear from the two words from which it is composed: queen indicates someone who served as queen consort (i.e. wife of a king), while dowager indicates a woman who holds the title from her deceased husband (a queen who rules in her own right and not due to marriage to a king is a queen regnant ). A queen mother is a dowager queen who is the mother of the reigning monarch. Currently there are four queens dowager: Kesang Choden of Bhutan (who is the only living queen grandmother worldwide), Norodom Monineath of Cambodia (who is also queen mother), Lisa Najeeb Halaby (Noor Al\'Hussein) , and Sirikit

Cupola
In architecture , a CUPOLA /ˈkjuːpələ/ is a small, most often dome -like, structure on top of a building. Often used to provide a lookout or to admit light and air, it usually crowns a larger roof or dome. The word derives, via Italian , from the lower Latin cupula (classical Latin cupella from the Greek κύπελλον kupellon) "small cup" (Latin cupa) indicating a vault resembling an upside down cup. The cupola is a development during the Renaissance of the oculus , an ancient device found in Roman architecture, but being weatherproof was superior for the wetter climates of northern Europe. The chhatri , seen in Indian architecture , fits the definition of a cupola when it is used atop a larger structure. Cupolas often appear as small buildings in their own right. They often serve as a belfry , belvedere , or roof lantern above a main roof. In other cases they may crown a spire , tower , or turret . Barns often have cupolas for ventilation
