Giant, one meeting a fairy queen (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

titania

Here is my best explanation:

'fairy queen' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'giant one meeting a' is the subsidiary indication.

'giant' becomes 'titan' ('titan' can be a synonym of 'giant'**).

'one' becomes 'i' (roman numeral).

'meeting' says to put letters next to each other.

'titan'+'i'+'a'='titania'
