As if by magic, Harry Potter author JK Rowling has replaced Cherie Blair as Britain's most powerful woman.

The Prime Minister's wife has dropped 50 places to languish at 62nd place in the Forbes list of the world's most powerful women.

Rowling, whose fantasy children's tales have transformed the once struggling single mother into a billionairess, came in at 40th place, up from 85th position last year.

Rose Marie Bravo, chief executive of Burberry, is 63rd while the Queen is the fourth Briton, trailing behind in a humble 75th place.

They are the only four Britons to make the top 100.

Irish President Mary McAleese romped home ahead of them all, ranked 21st in the world.

Top of the pile for a second year running is US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who became the first African American to take the post in January this year.

She is closely followed by Yi Wu, China's vice premier and minister of health, known as the country's Iron Lady. Yulia Tymoshenko, the Ukrainian prime minister occupies third position.
