Pharaohs, Emperors, and Other Women who Ruled
Mini biographies of women who were the officially recognised supreme authority for their society, be that a tribe, a confederation, a country or an empire. With examples from a pharaoh in the 15th century BCE to a 21st century Prime Minister, from Madagascar to Korea, this little book shows that there is no one “type” of female authority. Some were brilliant, others hopeless. Some were warriors, others administrators. Some swore to have no executions, others … did not. A quick stroll through history to find the overlooked stories of women who ruled.
