Humpy
A humpy (or gunyah[1][2]) is a small, temporary shelter, traditionally used by Australian Aboriginals, with a standing tree usually used as the main support. They are also sometimes called a lean-to, since it can rely on the tree for support. These impermanent dwellings, made of branches and bark (particularly paperbark), are often built prior to the construction of more permanent buildings.Contents1 Etymology 2 Usage 3 Gallery 4 See also 5 Notes 6 External linksEtymology[edit] The word humpy comes from the Jagera language (a Murri people from Coorparoo in Brisbane); other language groups would have different names for the structure. In South Australia, such a shelter is known as a "wurley" (also spelled "wurlie"), possibly from the Kaurna language.[3] Usage[edit] Both names were adopted by early white settlers, and now form part of the Australian lexicon

Queens Consort
A queen consort is the wife of a reigning king (or an empress consort in the case of an emperor). A queen consort usually shares her husband's social rank and status. She holds the feminine equivalent of the king's monarchical titles, but historically, she does not share the king's political and military powers. A queen regnant is a queen in her own right with all the powers of a monarch, who (usually) has become queen by inheriting the throne upon the death of the previous monarch. In Brunei, the wife of the Sultan
Sultan
is known as a Raja Isteri with prefix Pengiran Anak, equivalent to queen consort in English, as were the consorts of tsars when Bulgaria
Bulgaria
was still a monarchy.[clarification needed]Contents1 Titles 2 Role 3 Examples of queens and empresses consort 4 See alsoTitles[edit] The title of king consort for the husband of a reigning queen is rare, but not unheard of
