Summary
  • Some were bloodthirsty. Some were enlightened. One was not amused. All were women who held supreme power: queens, empresses, prime ministers, presidents, regents, constitutional monarchs, and other women rulers. Highly readable biographies cover each ruler's victories and defeats, foibles and triumphs, life and times
  • Did you know that a woman general saved the tottering empire of Jengiz-Kahn, that Cyrus the Great lost his life to a warrior queen, that Queen Margarethe of the Netherlands is a renowned illustrator, that Queen Liliuokalani of Hawaii wrote an internationally acclaimed song?
  • Women Rulers throughout the Ages is based on the author's award-winning Women Who Ruled. Many entries have been substantially revised, expanded, and updated, and more than 200 new entries have been added, covering individuals who came to power in the past decade, along with recently unearthed information about little-known rulers in Africa, the Middle East, and Central America
