She was many things. A ruler. A governance to those whom law did not apply. We do not believe her power emerged solely on instinct. She was a protector. For countless generations we lived together in delicate harmony--we proved our loyalties with a relationship forged in trust, respect... and fear. We knew what each other was capable of. It brought us together. Her death is an immeasurable loss to the balance of this island. She was the last queen of the Kong.

— The Tagatu storyteller to the Simian visitors (Kong on the Planet of the Apes)

The last queen of the Kong was an ancient female Kong who lived on Skull Island for hundreds of years before her death, appearing in the first two issues of the 2017 BOOM! Studios crossover comic series Kong on the Planet of the Apes. She was a defender of the Tagatu people, but died due to unknown causes in or prior to the year 3978.


The queen has the appearance of a typical Kong, fundamentally indistinguishable from other members of the species. She has blue-gray skin, light brown fur, and light-colored eyes.


While she washes ashore in the Forbidden Zone seeping blood from her nose and mouth and missing her right eye, her cause of death is unknown. The amount of actively bleeding wounds and the vibrancy of the blood's color suggests that she died closer to the Forbidden Zone than to Skull Island. This could be supported by the Tagatu not seeming to have been aware of her death prior to the Simian expedition's arrival. The cover art of the first issue depicts her with minimal, if any, active bleeding, as well as exposed bone, which would suggest that she, in artist Mike Huddleston's interpretation, had been dead for considerably longer.

"Death Becomes Them"

In the year 3978, the body of the last female Kong washed ashore in what was once New York City. She was bloodied and missing her right eye. While on a mission to destroy the remains of the Statue of Liberty in a ploy to keep ape-kind oblivious to the fact that they were living on a planet once dominated by humans, a gorilla soldier under the command of Ursus came to fetch Doctor Zaius, who summoned doctors Zira and Cornelius to study her corpse. They were put in charge of her autopsy, which they accomplished by parting her skin with hooks and ropes while the doctors stood on her chest to examine the work. The apes referred to her as "the god" and Ursus was in favor of building her a shrine as opposed to dissecting her. Apes used large two-man blades to slice off her hands, and over time all of her flesh was removed from her body. Within her stomach, Zira found foreign plants and bones that helped them to locate Skull Island. In three days' time they were ready to set sail, and Ursus, wanting to return the god to her holy land, mounted her skull to the mast of their ship, lamenting that they could not bring the rest of her dismembered body as well. They traveled to Warm Water Island, in what was once Kenya, from which they set out for Skull Island. When the ship arrived, it was attacked from the sea and sky by a giant cephalopod and giant Pteranodons.

"Return of the King"

When the apes got onto the island, Zira discovered a mural depicting humans worshiping a Kong, which Zira assumed was the god. When they were found by the native Tagatu people, Zira and Cornelius met with the Storyteller, who told them of the female, whom she called “the last queen of the Kong”, her life as the protector of her people, and her battles against reptile monsters. However, the Simians left her skull on the island, while taking a male home in her place.
