Did I find two carpenter queens today??

Hi all, I’m turning to this board for help identifying two very big carpenter ants that I found inside my house this morning (in Northern Ohio). Both are about ~15cm. It seems implausible that they would both be queens - could anyone help me determine if they are queens vs large swarmers?

Thanks!
