Is it possible for there to be more than one queen in a monarchy (in the case of twins or triplets)?

First out of the womb is the Monarch. They don't all come out together.

The word 'monarchy' means 'one ruler'.
Mono - one
Archy - ruler.
So the answer is NO!!!
However, in England we had joint monarchs ' William and Mary'.
'William' who was William of Orange was invited on to the English throne by partliament after it was abandoned by James(II).
William became King William(III) .
He was married to Mary Stuart , who was sister to James(II) . On ascension to the throne of England she became Queen Mary.
Hence England had joint monarchs ; King William(III) and Queen Mary(II).
King William was a dutch protestant, and quelled Irish insurrections of (London)Derry, Boyne, Aughrim, and Enniskillen. He goes down in history as the (in)famous 'King Billy'.

The first born becomes monarch, while the others are princesses.
It is possible to have more than one queen at a time, but only one queen regnant can reign at a time:
Queen Mother-- dowager parent of the queen
Queen Dowager-- it's possible that a grandmother who was once queen consort be alive
In real life there was a time when there were three queens, but only one reigned:
Queen Elizabeth II, the reigning monarch; Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, the widow of George VI and mother of Elizabeth II; Queen Mary, widow of George V, grandmother of Elizabeth II

If twins passed through the vaginal opening (or opening created in the abdomen by a Caesarean section) at exactly the same time, Parliament would have to determine which was the heir to the throne. Both could not be heir. There is only one heir.

No, the first one born takes the throne.

The eldest twin becomes Queen. It is technically possible to have two Queens at the same time, but only one would be the reigning monarch. An example of this would be Queen Elizabeth II and her mother, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, who was dowager Queen for about 50 years, but even then only through marriage.

No. The first born would be the heir.
