Uno became the undisputed queen of my cats after Hallie's death, at least for awhile. However, now Uno finds she has to share her throne. Splat Cat appointed herself as Uno's "nanny" and disciplinarian. Uno was still the queen of the cats as long as she didn't overstep her boundaries (as drawn by Splat Cat).
With the coming of Carina, the dynamics between the cats changed even more. Although the two rarely ever interact directly with each other, due to their similar personalities Splat Cat and Carina seem to reinforce each other's dominance and confidence in ruling over the other cats. Splat Cat tolerates Uno's exuberant irrepressible ways to a certain extent, perhaps because Uno, like Lacey, came as a small kitten.
As things are now, Uno has to share rulership of the other cats with Splat Cat and Carina although Uno still rules as queen most of the time. However when either Splat Cat or Carina asserts herself, Uno reluctantly finds she has to yield and let them rule over her temporarily. As principal queen of three rulers, Uno is a good balance to the other two because whereas Splat Cat and Carina have loner personalities and both are stand-offish with the other cats Uno is very social and is good friends with most of the other cats.
