(Edo-period) courtesan OR court official
Explanation: "The queen of ancient Japan was a court official."
"Taifu" can actually have three meanings:
(1) leading actor in a Noh play;
(2) (Edo-period) courtesan;
(3) ancient official
Whilst there's only one sentence on which to base context, (3) ancient official is the most likely here.
