    This is the first time I really noticed that the Garter symbol ends in a belt which could certainly be interpreted as phallic. Which begs the question, other than Queens Regnant, have there ever been any females ( or dames) of the garter?

    Thank you for following up so promptly. The list made interesting reading, and although there are several ladies on the list, they were spouses of kings of England, or close relatives, such as the Princess Royal. There is only one woman on the list who is neither queen or royalty, and that is the Duchess of Norfolk. Good to see that the ladies are represented. I am American, and I love English history and genealogy.
