It is the editor's pure speculation whether the Queen of Love derives its title from Hunter's devotion to wine women and ragtime and his first-hand knowledge of those commercial amorous establishments associated with man- and womankind's greatest obsession. The front cover of the original sheet music is adorned with a crown over a bespectacled, solemn faced Hunter radiating hearts aplenty. Be that as it may, Queen of Love, is a fine two step and has a marked processional character, especially in the opening strains, suggesting the passage of a queen and her court.
Queen of Love was published by H.A. French, Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
