BIOGRAPHIES

FEMALE HEROES & RULERS


Our heroes are women whom we consider central figures in an event or a period. They are "heroic" because of their abilities, achievements or qualities that helped define the age in which they lived. Our rulers are women who achieved the right to rule in their own name.
