8 historical ladies I’m currently interested in:
Cleopatra VII Philopator (69-30 BC): last ruler of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, she was a major political player in the Mediterranean era and fought to maintain the independence of her kingdom until her last days.
Isabella I of Castile (1451 - 1504): Queen of Castile after a struggle to claim the throne, she reformed her kingdom; while her marriage to Ferdinand II of Aragon turned their united kingdoms into an influential power during the Renaissance.
Anne of Brittany (1477-1514): last sovereign Duchess of Brittany, her wedding was a major issue due to the strategic position of her duchy, which led her to be married to two different French kings and twice crowned Queen consort of France.
Margaret of Austria (1480-1530): widowed after two marriages without issue, she then became Governor of the Low Countries and guardian of her nephew, the future Charles V Holy Roman Emperor, who maintained her in her position until her death (except for a brief interruption between 1515 and 1519).
Mary Tudor (1496-1533): briefly wed to Louis XII of France until his death, she then married for love one of her brother’s favorites, Charles Brandon 1st Duke of Suffolk, afterwards living a quiet life shared between the court and the countryside.
Anne of Cleves (1515-1557): fourth wife of Henry VIII and his consort with the shortest tenure, she went on to be referred as the King’s Beloved Sister after the annulment of their marriage, and lived to see the coronation of Mary I.
Mary I of England (1516-1558): eldest daughter of Henry VIII, she fought back against an attempt to remove her from the succession’s line at the death of her predecessor and became the first undisputed Queen regnant of England, paving the way for her successors.
Catherine de Medici (1519-1589): Queen consort of France during the reign of Henri II, she went on to play a major political role during the reigns of her three sons, maintaining the monarchy and the state institutions functioning during a time of civil and religious wars.
