Hail Her Royal Bitchiness - Alexis Morrell Carrington Colby Dexter - the Queen of Moldavia.
This promotional still from the late 1985 is taken from a scene which was shot but never used on "Dynasty" as the show underwent major retooling at Christmas 1985.
Given the lack of background I would assume this was Alexis' dream sequence, but it may have been her actual coronation scene which could have been filmed and then ditched along with the rest of the Moldavian storyline.
I have never seen the actual scene (how'd that be for season 6 DVD bonus material? I'm afraid a fan can only dream), but I've heard the original plan was for King Galen to succeed in getting his throne back and reward Alexis by making her his queen.
Therefore this still will simply remain as fuel for those "what if" thoughts - what would have become of "Dynasty" if the producers did stick to their plan and their prime villainess became the queen of a fictional European monarchy?
