In this vivid, sweeping history, Claudia Gold brings to life fifty extraordinary women united not just by sex, but by talent, intellect and driving ambition. Well known matriarchs such as Cleopatra, Eleanor of Aquitaine and Elizabeth I jostle for position with comparatively unsung heroines such as Theodora, Empress of Byzantium, Margaret I of Denmark, and Liliuokalani, Queen of Hawaii. A staggering achievement
