Product description

Product Description

Everyone has heard of Cleopatra and Boudicca.

But what about the other women who fought their way to power in the ancient world?

The struggle for women to gain recognition within society was an issue no less important in the ancient world than the modern one.

Not only was it incredibly difficult for them to earn the respect and power which their male counterparts were used to, but even those that were not taken as seriously as they should have been by the historians of the time.

For these reasons it has been notoriously difficult for us to know much about these powerful women.

Until now, that is.

In 'Queens of the Ancient World' Ingrid de Haas explores the exploits and successes of twenty-one of the most powerful women of the ancient world - women who made a difference socially, politically, and even militarily, even when they were not in direct command.

She seeks to prove the truth of the idiom that ‘behind every great man there’s a great woman’.

With original research, she strips away myths and legends to tell the real stories by some of history's most forceful personalities.

'Queens of the Ancient World' is an essential read for anyone interested in the story of the ancient world.

'And original and important work.' - Robert Foster, best-selling author of 'The Lunar Code'.

Ingrid de Haas has a doctorate in Roman history from the University of California, and is the author of ‘Roman Arms: Huntress’, 'Take my Order for an Amulet' and 'Female Slave Resistance in the Roman Empire'.

Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent publisher of digital books.
