I've been looking all over the web, and all over Queenzone, but I STILL can't find a list of Queen's 18 number one hits. This is what I have so far:

Bohemian Rhapsody -UK, Canada, many other countries
Somebody To Love - The Netherlands
We Are The Champions - France
Love Of My Life - Basically everywhere in South America
Crazy Little Thing Called Love - US and Australia
Another One Bites The Dust - US and Canada
Flash - Austria
Under Pressure - UK
Radio Ga Ga - Ireland
I Want To Break Free - Austria
Innuendo - UK
These Are The Days Of Our Lives - UK
Somebody To Love (With George Michael) - UK
You Don’t’ Fool Me - Italy
We Will Rock You (With Five) - UK

So far I'm missing three.
Apparently AKOM was number 1 in 35 different countries, but I still can't find one.
Also, Ride The Wild Wind was (supposedly)a number one in Poland.
Was Body Language a number one in Canada? I've found a few sources that say so.
If anyone has any further info as to where these songs or other songs made number one, please let me know.

Thank you.

One more thing. If Queen Productions ever makes a "1" album like The Beatles or Elvis, I hope to God they'll have the original version of WWRY on there, and not the Five version.

I'm Going Slightly Mad in Hong Kong.
Las Palabras De Amor in Poland.
We Will Rock You (Original) in France.

Also, the original singles you mention were Number 1 in more countries than you say.

That's correct. I can also add: Ride the Wild Wind - No. 1 in Poland.

How the heck did RTWW get to #1 in Poland? As far as I recall, I've never even seen a copy of a physical single for that one

Not all singles charts are based on physical copies sold like Europe, USA and other countries in the Western world have.
Many countries around the world had charts based on radio airplay and requests from listeners, and that is how those charts were made up. Poland being one of those countries.

Track 12 "Yeah" was big in Nutopia

not sure if it was #1 though... cause we don't attend to charts.

I remember reading somewhere that Mad The Swine made it to number 1 in Ringoland.

But seriously, other than the ones I mentioned, and the ones that were mentioned, did Queen have any other REAL number ones?

If not, can someone tell me where else the songs I mentioned made it to number one?

So, I guess Queen had more than 18 number ones!
