# A simple lover's riddle

I share not quite the name of a british lover of many

And when I close my eyes, I see a queen in front of me

Know that I am all blackness without a french woman

Who am I ? And don't mistake me for my loved one

Hint 1

Two of these lines are playing with the word, but maybe is it a little far fetched ?

Hint 2

The lover of many is also killer of many
The queen is really small
Without a french woman, I'm also without wings (still french)
Don't mistake me for my loved one, because so much people do

• Another (large) hint ! – Keelhaul Jan 4 '18 at 10:32

I share not quite the name of a british lover of many

James Bond is a well known British womanizer who kills in the line of duty; his surname 'Bond' is synonymous with the verb 'link' (thanks to SuperWild1).

And when I close my eyes, I see a queen in front of me

With a queen B (thanks to the hint & NL628) in front, you blink

Know that I am all blackness without a french woman

She/her in french is elle, and wings (from the hint) is ailes, both pronounced L, leaving black ink

Who am I ? And don't mistake me for my loved one

A reference to Link, the protagonist of The Legend of Zelda video games, who people often mistakenly believe is the titular Zelda (the sometimes love interest).

• You got it ! Only the first clue is wrong, think of a british fictionnal character ;) – Keelhaul Jan 11 '18 at 9:23
• @Keelhaul - I'm not British, and no characters jump to mind that have a link-like name... Certainly not one that both loves and kills many. Feel free to edit in that part of the answer so that it's complete. – Alconja Jan 11 '18 at 10:30
• Well, no need to be british to know him, and it's not quite the name (still, there's a relation). Let's see if someone can find it ;) – Keelhaul Jan 11 '18 at 10:46
• Suggested edit for the remaining hint. – SuperWild1 Jan 11 '18 at 10:51

Are you a

bee? The queen in the riddle is the queen bee? Black and yellow bee? No wings? These are all just wild guesses :P

• -1? Is this not correct? – NL628 Jan 10 '18 at 5:59
• Being incorrect should not be the reason for -1 (and I am not the downvoter). – Weijun Zhou Jan 10 '18 at 7:46
• That is not the answer, but you got part of a hint, better than nothing! :) – Keelhaul Jan 10 '18 at 9:54
