Is there a play in which the main character is a strong, decisive, heroic, successful queen (or female ruler or female warrior)?
(Not Lady Macbeth -- she was evil and pathetic and too full of flaws. Not Joan of Arc -- she was a tragic figure.)

Most plays are either comedies or tragedies. Shakespeare's "Anthony and Cleopatra" fits your criteria IMO. Cleopatra is her own boss. It all goes bad, but she takes her own life rather than be paraded in Rome as a captive. I don't know if there are plays or operas extant about the other great queens of history.

I don't know about plays but Manda Scott wrote an entire series about Boudicca the Queen of the Iceni tribes

You want someone unflawed? THen thats not an interesting main character. So no.
Main characters need flaws so that they can be interesting and relatable.
