Is “Warawa” (わらわ) a Common First Person Pronoun in Japan?

As you may know, there are multiple first person pronouns in Japanese. Women use Watashi (私, わたし) for their first person pronoun, but don’t use “Warawa” in general. Originally, “Warawa” was a word that a woman used to humbly identifies herself. In anime or other fiction, it is used by the queen or princess when they address themselves pompously.
