|AAA Reina de Reinas Championship|
|Promotion||Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA)|
|Date established||February 19, 1999|
|Current champion(s)||Taya Valkyrie|
|Date won||September 15, 2019|
The AAA Reina de Reinas Championship (literally "AAA Queen of Queens Championship," "AAA Women's Chamionship") is a singles women's professional wrestling championship promoted by Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA). It is the only females only championship currently in AAA. Being a professional wrestling championship, it is not won legitimately; it is instead won via a scripted ending to a match or awarded to a wrestler because of a storyline. Taya is the current champion in her third reign.
From its creation in 1999 to 2009, the title was put on the line every year during the eponymous "Reina de Reinas" tournament, in addition to traditional defenses. The tournament eventually returned in 2012, with Sexy Star becoming the first wrestler to successfully retain the title at the event.
The inaugural champion was Xóchitl Hamada, who was crowned after winning the original Reina de Reinas tournament in 1999. Tiffany, Sexy Star, Faby Apache and Taya hold the records for both most reigns with three, and Reina de Reinas tournaments won, also with three. The record for longest reign is held by Taya, whose first reign lasted 945 days, with the record for shortest held by Ayako Hamada (Xóchitl's sister) at 33 days. Although the title is supposedly for women only, Pimpinela Escarlata, a man whose character was a transvestite, won it in 2011.
