1TAC WARRIOR WEDNESDAY
TOP TEN FEMALE WARRIORS IN HISTORY
We picked our favorites:
They were mothers, sisters, daughters, and wives. But above all these women were warriors. All across time, and all around the globe, they brandished swords and guns, fought battles, and faced off with royalty. Though outnumbered by their bands of brothers in battle, these fearsome female fighters have each made an indelible mark on history. They all have a place in our hearts for Warrior Wednesday.
Joan of Arc
It’s enough to make any 19-year-old feel inadequate: By the time Jeanne d’Arc of Orleans, France, had reached that age, she’d had visitations from God, led French military forces into several battles and many victories against England during the Hundred Years’ War, was credited with putting a king (Charles VII) on the French throne, captured by a rival royal house and sold to England, where she was tried, convicted and burned at the stake. Sure, there’s a “Spanish Joan of Arc,” “Vietnamese Joan of Arc” and likely many more, but on any list of legendary female warriors, there is only one Joan of Arc, and she should always land at the top.
Perhaps no legendary female warrior on our list has as many notches in her belt from military victories as Zenobia, the third-century warrior queen of Palmyra (in modern-day Syria). Zenobia only became queen because of the assassination of her husband, who was heir to the throne. Judging from her accomplishments, though, she wasted no time taking to the role, winning enormously important battles against Egypt, Persia, Palestine, and even Rome. She even had the guts to declare independence from Rome (although Rome would reconquer Palmyra during her reign)
Semiramis was a warrior queen in the ancient city of Babylon back around the ninth century BC (or at least she probably was). So many fantastic legends surround her name that separating historical fact from hysterical fiction is impossible, but this doesn’t prevent us from reveling in her legend. It’s said that she convinced the king of Babylon to make her regent for the day, and when he did, she ordered that he be killed, resulting in one of history’s quickest and cleverest coup d’etats. Once in power, she vastly expanded the empire by sheer, brute military force.
When this legendary 13th century female warrior succeeded her father as the Sultan of Delhi, she became one of just a small handful of female leaders in the history of Islamic civilization. She was raised to lead the military, and that’s precisely what she did. In the process, she defied various traditional Muslim customs for women, including choosing not to cover her face — a decision she took very seriously, especially as she led her army into battle on the back of an elephant.
Grainne Ni Mhaille (Grace O’Malley)
Of aristocratic birth and from a seafaring family, Grace O’Malley was a 16th century Irish pirate queen whose exploits in battle — at sea along the Irish coast against competing clans or against attacking English forces — won over her enemies and inspired a nation. O’Malley’s reputation was not a merciful one — legend has her melting iron and pouring it onto the heads of her enemies.
GMargaret of Anjou
What do you do when your royal house is under threat and your husband is weak, stupid and you believe he is about to be deposed? If you’re Margaret of Anjou, wife of Henry VI, you assume control of your house and wage war. For Margaret, this amounted to defending the Lancastrian forces against those of the Yorkists in what became known as the three-decades-long Wars of the Roses. Although she ultimately lost, she ordered executions and led her armies into battle, showing a ruthless streak that could not have been predicted when she first married Henry at the age of 15.
Trieu Thi Trinh
Trieu Thi Trinh was (probably) a third-century female warrior whose valiant rejection of the Chinese invaders into Vietnam has earned her the historical nickname, the “Vietnamese Joan of Arc.” Her extraordinary achievements in battle have proven so inspirational to the Vietnamese people over the centuries that she has become larger than life — many accounts of her endeavors describe her as standing 9-feet tall.
Amina Sukhera, otherwise known as Aminatu, was a 16th century Muslim warrior princess whose military leadership was responsible for conquering much of the land surrounding Zazzau in modern-day northern Nigeria for her own royal house. Today, in Zaria and other parts of Nigeria, Sukhera enjoys the reputation of a distinguished woman, having later in her life assumed the role of African queen mother.
Augustina de Aragon
In the 19th century, the armies of France marched through Spanish city after Spanish city until they reached Saragossa and humble inhabitant Agustina de Aragon, whose fearless defense of the city as an ordinary citizen proved so successful that she was made an officer in the Spanish military. Her incredible defense of Saragossa has predictably earned Aragon the nickname “the Spanish Joan of Arc.” Warrior Wednesday
Nakano Takeko was a 19th century onna-bugeisha or Japanese female warrior samurai who was fully trained in the martial arts and who remains one of only a few true female warrior samurai in all of the history of Japan. Takeko fought against the Japanese Imperial Army in the Boshin War, serving with great distinction until she took a bullet to the chest. She then ordered her sister to behead her and bury it, denying her enemy the privilege. Warrior Wednesday
