Her father favored her and let her follow him both in war and in the governing of his kingdom. She was the envoy of her brother at a peace conference with the Portuguese governor João Correia de Sousa, and managed to persuade him to stop the marauding of Imbangala mercenaries in Portuguese service. During that meeting, the governor had placed a floor mat for her to sit on, which was appropriate only for servants according to Mbundu custom. Nzinga ordered one of her servants to get down on the ground and sat on the servant's back, which asserted equal status to the governor. It also proved her worth as a brave and confident individual. Although the negotiation succeeded, the treaty was never honored and Nzinga's brother committed suicide as he was convinced that he would never have been able to recover what he had lost. The country needs a strong monarch, and Nzinga has proved that she has the skill, the political power and the strength to assume the mantle.

A woman known as Gráinne Ní Mháille has arrived at our court to petition the release of her sons Tibbot Burke and Murrough O'Flaherty, and her half-brother, Donal-na-Piopa. She is the Queen of Umaill, chieftain of the Ó Máille clan, a known trader and supposed pirate. 'The Sea Queen of Connacht' they call her, owner of Hen's Castle. It was named so because of her first husband's attitude after he had taken a fortress in the Lough Corrib from the Joyce clan which first named it 'Cock's Castle'. When he died the Joyces tried to retake it but Gráinne Ní Mháille defended it vigorously and they became so impressed that they renamed it Caisleán na Circe, the 'Hen's Castle'. There's a legend, a story about her defending the castle from the English by taking lead from the roof of the fortress, melted it and then poured it onto the heads of the attacking soldiers. She withstood the siege until help arrived and the English were beaten back. Having her as our advisor or admiral could be worthwhile.

----

The opera singer Julie d'Aubigny learned dancing, reading, drawing, and fencing while young. She fled to Marseille together with Sérannes, an assistant fencing master and they earned money by giving fencing exhibitions and singing in taverns and at local fairs. Julie d'Aubigny joined the opera company run by Pierre Gaultier in Marseille and left Sérannes for a young woman. The two lovers managed to get away from a convent by setting it on fire. Three months later, the girl returned to her parents and d'Aubigny was charged in absentia with kidnapping, body snatching, arson, and failing to appear before the tribunal. The sentence was death by fire.
She returned to Paris and asked an old lover of hers, the Count d'Armagnac, to persuade the king to grant her a pardon and a place at the Paris Opéra. The audience love her beautiful voice, her acting skill, and her androgynous appearance, but she has not gained as many friends amongst her fellow actors and actresses. Louis Gaulard Dumesny had bothered female members and thus earned himself a beating by d'Aubigny, Thévenard and her duel of wits are legendary and she defeated three noblemen in duels who challenged her after she kissed a young woman at a society ball. Though she might have many flaws, she is a diamond in the rough. What should we do with her?

Msg event.pngAnne Boleyn

----

The breaking of the Catholic Church began with king Henry VIII's desire to marry Anne Boleyn and the pope's refusal to annul his previous marriage to Queen Catherine. Anne had refused to become the king's mistress and told him that the only way she would yield to his embraces was if he married her. The leader of the English Reformation, the Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Cranmer declared Henry and Catherine's marriage null and void, then declared Henry and Anne's marriage to be good and valid. The pope immediately decreed sentences of excommunication against Henry and Cranmer. This resulted in the break between the Church of England and Rome, the Church of England was brought under the King's control. Anne became pregnant quickly and the future Queen Elizabeth I was born on 7 September, 1533. Disappointed in the gender of the child, and the three miscarriages that followed, Henry started courting Jane Seymour. In order to get rid of his wife, king Henry VIII charged Anne with adultery, incest, and witchcraft and sent to the Tower of London, where she awaits trial.

The young woman's face was scarred by smallpox and her eyes grew weak because of the disease.

She took the name Kateri - Catherine - when she converted to Roman Catholicism at age nineteen and left to live with a Christian community as she faced ill treatment and death threats because of her conversion. Five years after her conversion, she died in the arms of her friend Marie-Therèse, her last words 'Jesus, Mary, I love you.'. Witnesses say that her scars disappeared mere minutes after her death, her flesh finally mirroring the beauty inside with radiance and grace.

Accounts written after the Spanish had retreated told of how she, together with most of the townspeople, stood on the earthworks erected and threw burning tar wreaths around the neck of the Spanish soldiers. At least one Spanish soldier jumped into the river to douse the flames and drowned from the weight of the armor. She is a humble woman, but inside her burns a fire that we could use...

The funds for repairing the main hall of Izumo Taisha has long been gathered, but Izumo no Okuni shows no sign of stopping. Her gaudy, musical, noisy and colorful performances are called Kabuki, after the kabukimono - homeless, disaffected and displaced young and old men and women outside of the society that her troupe consists of. Kabuki started as line dance and song with no plot, but it evolved into drama with the aid of Sanzaburo Ujisato, Izumo no Okuni's lover, partner and financier. The revue is a great success, known and applauded through the whole of $COUNTRY$.

Msg event.pngNora of Kelmendi

----

Abandoned at an orphanage, adopted by her aunt and raised as a boy, Nora's life did not exactly begin happily. Her father was a noble warrior who fought against the Ottoman Empire and desired a son to help him fight against the oppressors and was disappointed when Nora was born. His sister secretly adopted Nora and when her brother desired to train the young 'boy' as a fighter, she gave her approval. Nora was trained by her father and turned out to be the most beautiful girl in the country. Her beauty has been compared to that of a mountain fairy, a Zana. Her father regretted abandoning her at the orphanage and they reconciled. When Nora was visiting a city where a pasha resided, the pasha saw her and fell madly in love. He sent a trusted man to Nora's house and asked for her hand, by the laws of the Albanian Kanun, but Nora's family refused, stating that the Albanian Kanun did not allow for marriages with non-Albanians. The pasha did not take this well, unaccustomed with such refusal and raged, 'Either Nora will become my wife or I will burn all of Malsia to ashes.'. In order to break the siege the pasha had led to her town, Nora devised a plan to kill the pasha. She went to the pasha pretending to want to marry him. After the pasha, joyous with her presence, had sent his troops away she stabbed him with a dagger, kicked him and chocked him so that he could not scream. The pasha did not die, for he fell on the ground and as it is dishonorable for an Albanian to strike a man that is not standing or not fighting back, Nora fled before she could kill him. The Albanian army attacked, and Nora returned with an army of 300 women, killing the pasha in a duel.

The heart-shaped medallion worn by her husband during the battle is always worn by her and she vowed never to marry again. While her husband was still alive, she held significant authority and influence, and she has proved to be a determined and skillful politician. For example, she appointed Austria's ambassador, Andrea de Borgo herself and when political factions threatened the throne, she took control over one and neutralized another. She loves literature, music, and hunting and is an enthusiastic patron of many different arts. Her brother Ferdinand, king of Bohemia, made her regent of Hungary after her husband's death despite her reluctance. After he assumed the crown, her older brother Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, asked her to be the regent of the Netherlands and assume guardianship over their nieces Dorothea and Christina of Denmark as Margaret of Austria, Duchess of Savoy had died. This post was even more reluctantly accepted by Mary, and she never enjoyed it although she served so well as regent that Charles forced her to retain the role. It felt like having a rope around her neck, she complained to her brother Ferdinand.

----

Together with her husband Albert, who died in 1621, Isabella Clara Eugenia, infanta of Spain and Portugal, was sovereign of the Netherlands in the Low Countries and after his death she was appointed the Governor of the Netherlands. Their reign brought a Golden Age, with peace and stability. Albert and Isabella first sought to make the Netherlands independent from Spain, something that proved impossible, so instead they worked to reincorporate the Southern Provinces into the Spanish monarchy. This was not popular among the Flemish social classes, but they did not give up their political agenda. The visual arts became their preferred tool and it proved perfect. The baroque had become popular and with Isabella's and Albert's patronage of artists such as Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Brueghel the Younger, Coebergher, the De Nole family, the Van Veens and many others, the growth of this artistic movement was simulated and the Flemish Baroque painting created. The court at Brussels became full of people of all sorts, from artists and diplomats to defectors, spies and penitent traitors, from English musicians, Italian counselors, Spanish confessors, Burgundian functionaries, German bodyguards to the Belgian Nobles. Brussels is now considered a vital link in the politics of Europe, much thanks to Albert and Isabella Clara Eugenia.

Her favorites were appointed to state positions due to her influence and she was called many scornful things such as 'minister in a skirt', 'Jesuit's bigotry', the King's mistress and 'obscene favorite'. Despite many marriage offers, Urszula has never married. The Pope sent her a Golden Rose, who she corresponded with, as an award for an exceptionally virtuous life.

Her great wisdom, reason and shrewdness is why she is often deployed on diplomatic missions and other obligations her husband cannot cope with. Many calls her 'a great ruler and the First Lady of the Republic'. She has meetings with the whole of Europe and is entangled in many political matters, including who will be put upon the [Root.GetAdjective] throne. The anti-Habsburg insurrection in Hungary, with the Prince of Transylvania Francis II Rákãczi as leader of the insurrection, had her support and the Prince her love. While trying to negotiate an agreement between the Tsar of Russia and the king of Sweden, she was abducted by the Swedish army and met with the king before she was released. Her husband negotiated with the Tsar his candidature to the throne, something Elzbieta disapproved of and threatened him with divorce if he did not stop the negotiations. Adam Mikolaj Sieniawski never managed to grasp the throne. Her unscrupulous acts as an politician has made Charles XII of Sweden refer to her as 'that most accursed woman'. She has many secret contacts with different camps and conducts various personal intrigues, many to reduce outside influence in the land.

The first time Maria Carolina of Austria saw Ferdinand she found him very ugly and she soon realized that he lacked the ability to rule. He relied on the counsel of his father Charles III of Spain and so she sought to gain his trust in order to get access to the Privy Council. Feigning an interest in hunting - Ferdinand's favorite activity - she obtained a back-door to the council but it was not until their son was born that she gained full access to it. The rejuvenation of the court life in $COUNTRY$ led to her increased influence and political power, and she began to rebuild the land. Together with John Acton, commander-in-chief of the navy and the army, she revamped the [Root.GetAdjective] navy by commissioning 150 ships and opening four marine colleges. Trade pacts with Russia and Genoa augmented the merchant navy, the ban on Freemasonry was revoked and she patronizes many artist such as Angelica Kauffman and Jacob Philipp Hackert.

----

The [Root.GetAdjective] people were charmed by her personality and beauty when they first saw Marie Antoniette at the Tuileries, and exclaimed over her fair skin, straw-blond hair, blue eyes and her majestic tall figure. She was Dauphine of [Root.GetAdjective] until her husband Louis-Auguste became king of France and Navarre and she assumed the title of Queen. Her education was very poor, focused on manners and appearance. Despite this, she tried to gain influence at court but at the start, the King blocked her candidates, who could have helped her increase her political power. It took seven years of marriage before her first daughter was born, and the birth was difficult. The pressure of having a male heir weighted on her, and she took to gambling and buying expensive dresses. Slowly but surely she managed to increase her influence and became paramount in government by giving her support to marquis de Castries - who became Minister of the Navy -, marquis de Ségur - who became Minister of War -, Charles Alexandre de Calonne - who became the Financial Minister - and baron de Breteuil who became Minister of Royal Household. The ministers of the Navy and the War attempted to prevent the middle classes from reaching high positions in the Army and Navy, something Marie Antoinette supported. Spending money on dresses, buying houses and gambling, the [Root.GetAdjective] viewed her as an amoral, squanderer, ignorant foreign Queen who cared more about her country of origin than $COUNTRY$. This was untrue, and after the first failed Assembly of Notables, she abandoned her carefree activities to immerse herself into politics to try and save the country for her children's sake, to change the view the people of $COUNTRY$ had of her and help her depressed husband the King.

Msg event.pngBarbara of Cilli

----

The royal Order of the Dragon was created by Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund and Barbara of Cilli, Holy Roman Empress and Queen of Hungary and Bohemia. This order requires its initiates - selected nobility - to defend the cross and fight the enemies of Christianity. Serving as regent when her husband was absent, Barbara also administered large feudal fiefdoms and taxes independently, and was actively involved in politics and economy. When the two of them attended the Council of Constance, many were struck by her youth, vitality and beauty.
With the death of her husband in 1437 Barbara has taken on the role of a dowager queen, settling down in Bohemia and retired from political life. Despite this the Imperial court still views her with some suspicion. We could certainly benefit from her experience though giving her a position of influence might strain relations with the Emperor.

He ruled under her thumb but as his health declined, so did her power as more people tried to take advantage of the sickly Tsar. At Feodor's death, Sophia[5] two brothers were crowned senior Tsar and junior Tsar, with her to govern in their place as Ivan had both physical and mental disabilities while Peter, only nine years old at the time, was deemed too young to properly rule $COUNTRY$. By attending Feodor's funeral she formally entered the political scene and planned to secure the throne for herself with the help of connections, allies and capable politicians such as Prince Vasily Galitzine which she deftly utilized. It caused quite a commotion as women were kept from involvement in politics but Sophia managed to secure the throne with the help of the Streltsy, a military troop, and the uprising they took part of after Feodor's death. During the time she spent at Feodor's side, Sophia has acquired a good education and a political savvy that convinced the nobles and patriarch of her capacities to rule $COUNTRY$. Though she haven't governed the country for long, Sophia has shown that if she takes the throne, she will rule with a firm and heavy fist. She has already started preparations to further the organization of the military and to create an institution of higher learning.

----

Some women has only held worth in their families eyes because they could be married to wealthy and influential men, often many years their senior, to forge alliances, gain influence and founding in different matters. So was the case with Lucrezia Borgia, whose father Pope Alexander VI married her to three different men during her life to gain powerful alliances and founding. Her first husband was Giovanni Sforza, Lord of of Pesaro and titled Count of Catignola. He was offered Lucrezia's dowry in return for invalidating the marriage, the Pope claiming that it had not been consummated and should thus be dissolved. The Borgia family had grown so powerful that they no longer needed the Sforzas, and instead sought better alliances. Giovanni first refused, accusing Lucrezia of paternal and fraternal incest, but with the pressure from the rest of the Sforza family he finally agreed to sign confessions of impotence and documents of annulment before witnesses. Alfonso of Aragon married Lucrezia Borgia after the annulment, but the short marriage ended when he was murdered, supposedly by Lucrezia's brother Cesare. Lucrezia was appointed governor of Spoleto not long before her husband's death, and they had a child named Rodrigo of Aragon. Her third and last husband was Alfonso I d'Este, Duke of Ferrara. Lucrezia's reputation has taken a hit, with her many different marriages, murdered husband, annulment and the stain that her father and brother had brought upon her. Hopefully, with her marriage to the Duke, she can be known as a respectable and accomplished Renaissance duchess.

The pirate sloop Revenge with Calico Jack Rackham as captain held a rum party when the pirate hunter Captain Jonathan Barnet disabled the ship with a volley of fire. The crew fled or were too drunk to fight, leaving Mary Read and Anne Bonny to fend off Barnet's troops. They were overcome and Rackham surrendered. They were all arrested and sentenced to hang for acts of piracy. The two women 'Pleaded the Belly', which granted them a temporary mercy until their children were born. Mary Read told us of her life before she joined Rackham and Bonny, born an illegitimate child to the widow of a sea captain. Her mother disguised her as a boy and called her 'Mark' to receive money from her dead brother's grandmother. When she became a teenager, she first found work as a foot-boy and then took employment on a ship. Still dressed as a man, she joined the British military and proved herself through battle. After falling in love with a Flemish soldier, they bought an inn with their military commission and gifts from friends in the army, who until her marriage had not realized that 'Mark' was actually 'Mary'. Her husband died young and Read once again donned male dress and took employment as a soldier. But there were no wars, no battles to fight and no room for advancement. She quit the army and boarded a ship. It was taken by pirates and Read was forced to join them. After having taken the King's pardon and a commission to privateer, she joined the crew in mutiny and returned to piracy. Then she met the pirate captain John 'Calico Jack' Rackham and his companion Anne Bonny.

Her name was Arjumand Banu Begum but her husband Shah Jahan, then Prince Khurram, gave her the title Mumtaz Mahal - Chosen One of the Palace - as he found her appearance and character so elect among all the women of the time. The love, intimacy and passion between them was so strong that Shah Jahan neglected his other two wives, only dutifully siring a child with each. Poets extolled her beauty, grace and compassion and the court historians documented the intimate and erotic relationship the couple enjoyed. Mumtaz Mahal never left Shah Jahan's side, traveling with him all over $COUNTRY$ and he trusted her so that he gave her the Muhr Uzah, his imperial seal. Though she had no aspirations to political power, she frequently intervened on behalf of the poor and destitute. Thirteen pregnancies had taken their toll on Mumtaz Mahal's body and her fourteenth, and last, took her life. Shah Jahan's grief over her death made him go into secluded mourning for a year, and when he reappeared, his hair had turned white. His back was bent, his face worn and it was only his eldest daugther Jahanara Begum who could bring him out of grief. The Taj Mahal was planned and designed by Shah Jahanar to become a suitable mausoleum and funerary garden for Mumtaz Mahal.

The Beloved Woman of the Cherokee Nancy Ward or Nanyehi - One who goes about - sits in councils and makes decisions together with other Beloved Women and chiefs. She is known to us as a peace negotiator and ambassador who believes that we should live in peaceful coexistence with people from other countries and cultures. Her first husband was Kingfisher, who died in the battle of Taliwa. Nanyehi continued the fight and led her people to victory. Her bravery was awarded with the title of 'Ghigau' which made her a member of the tribal council of chiefs. The Women's Council of Clan Representatives named her their leader and she became the ambassador and negotiator for her people. From Mrs. Lydia William Bean, who Nanyehi spared when the woman was captured after an attack on Bean's settlement, she was taught a new loom weaving technique after having nursed Bean back to health. The new weaving technique changed the roles of women in the Cherokee society. The men was left to do the planting, traditionally a woman's job, when the women took on the weaving. Two dairy cows were rescued from the destroyed settlement by Mrs. Bean, who then taught Nanyehi to raise the cattle and to eat dairy products. This proved helpful as the dairy could sustain the Cherokee when hunting was bad. Chief Attakullakulla taught Nanyehi the art of diplomacy and she was much surprised when she met European diplomats as there were no women negotiators among them. Their leader was appalled, such important work should not be given to a woman! Nanyehi replied: 'You know that women are always looked upon as nothing; but we are your mothers, you are our sons. Our cry is all for peace, let it continue. This peace must last forever. Let your women's sons be ours, our sons be yours. Let your women hear our words.'.

Alas, the may flys does not live longer

VITALIS'
The statesman and noble Johan Skytte gave his daughters Vendela and Anna the same education as their brothers - the two studied theology, ethics, history, philology and geology. Vendela mastered Latin, French, German and Greek, and wrote letters in Latin to the learned Catharina Burea. Her parents admired the humanists Thomas More, Erasmus of Rotterdam and Juan Luis Vives, which led to the unusual educational level of Vendela. She married the noble colonel lieutenant Hans Kyle who was in service of the army of the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] and sometimes accompanied him in Germany. In $COUNTRY$, she held a salon and participated in intellectual debates, surrounding herself with scientists and artists. Her beauty and wit was admired and she was famed for her learning and academic abilities, rare qualities for her sex. 'Sexus et sæculi miraculum' - The wonder of her time and her sex - Vendela was called by Georg Stiernhielm, something she proved at the Jesuit College in Braunsberg in East Prussia where she conducted a religious debate with learned Catholic males. She won the debate in perfect Latin, questioning the most sacred ideals of the Catholic religion.

The two roles Jahanzeb Banu Begum, the wife of Prince Muhammad Azam, has in the princely household are of diplomatic and military nature. She is a beautiful, cultured and courageous woman whose great skill at maintaining a household of harmony has been tested many times. She makes sure a strong spirit of camaraderie and shared struggles is cultivated among the members of the household. If it had not been for her, Mir Hedayatullah, the chief huntsman and koka, would have never been forgiven by Prince Muhammad Azam when they had exchanged bitter words after a spat. Azam trusted her and confided in her, as she was his favorite wife and vastly loved by him. This helped when Jahanzeb had to persuade him to let Mir Hedayatullah rejoin the household. The relationship between their son Prince Bidar Bakht and Azam is often poisoned due to imperial favor, and it is up to Jahanzeb to soothe the relation and make sure they got along. Jahanzeb led her husband's troops when he had to move ahead upon summons from his father, and she mounted her elephant three years later to encourage a lagging [Root.GetAdjective] counterattack on the enemy. It was then she made a promise to commit suicide if the [Root.GetAdjective] Army was overrun. Thankfully, that did not happen.

Msg event.pngChing Shih

----

The sly and shrewd pirate queen Ching Shih - 'The Terror of South China' as she was called - managed to negotiate that she would keep all her loot ill-begotten from piracy. $COUNTRY$ has found it impossible to beat her, with sixty-three ships lost in the latest attacks, so amnesty was offered to all pirates and Ching Shih took advantage of this. Ending her career a wealthy woman, she retired with her husband Chang Pao. There are those who say that her fleet consisted of over 300 junks manned by 20,000-40,000 pirates, while others claim that she had 1,800 ships with a crew of about 80,000 men, women, and even children. Ching Shih used to be a prostitute until she was captured by pirates and married Jihng Yat, one of the most notorious pirates before she took control of his fleet after his death. The Red Flag Fleet was a coalition of several competing Cantonese pirate fleets gathered by Jihng Yat using military assertion and his reputation. He died in Vietnam and Ching Shih maneuvered her way into his leadership position by cultivating personal relationships. She managed to make herself essential to the captains and united the fleet by issuing a code of laws. The first law was that anyone giving their own orders or disobeying those of a superior were beheaded immediately. The second law forbade theft from the public fund or any villagers that supplied the pirates. The third law was that all goods taken as booty had to be presented and registered by a purser and then distributed by the fleet leader. 20 percent was given to the original seizer and the rest was placed in the public fund. The fourth law was that all actual money was to be turned over to the squadron leader and used to purchase supplies for unsuccessful ships. The fleet robbed towns, markets and villages from Macau to Canton, even establishing hegemony over many coastal villages, in some cases imposing levies and taxes on settlements.

Mentewab has summoned her Qwaran relatives and their forces for support, while Wubit has summoned her Oromo relatives and their considerable forces.

She soon forgot her bitterness and Safiye Sultan earned the gratitude of the Sultan by procuring more concubines for him. Murad valued her and consulted with her on political matters. Their only son Mehmed became sultan after Murad's death and Safiye became Valide Sultan - mother sultan, a title with much power. She steered [Root.GetAdjective] politics together with Gazanfer Aga, chief of the white eunuchs and head of the enderun - the imperial inner palace. During her son's military campaigns Safiye was left in charge of the treasury and managed to persuade her son to follow her advice in many political matters.

This is worth noting, as her coup to take the [Root.GetAdjective] throne will be successful if we agree to let her rule. Anna Leopoldovna's regency for her infant Ivan VI has been marked by high taxes and economic problems, which has furthered Elizaveta's cause. The Russian guards regiments supports her and could be the determining force that compels us to anoint her ruler. She has promised to never sign death sentences but is not adverse to spill blood. With the words, 'Who do you want to serve? Me, the natural sovereign, or those who have stolen my inheritance?' the Preobrazhensky Regiment was convinced to join her. Hopefully she has inherited her father's genius for government, Elizaveta has already shown signs of keen judgment and diplomatic tact that remains us of Peter the Great. Aleksey Bestuzhev-Ryumin is rumored to become her new vice chancellor, a formidable diplomat, and she has expressed her dissatisfaction with the cabinet council system, wishing to reconstitute the senate as it had been under Peter the Great, with the chiefs of the departments of state attending.

The obstinacy and cruelty of Anna of Russia can be explained by her upbringing, she was raised for the nunnery and grew up confined to a royal cult of domesticity which did not allow for her personality to develop properly. The [Root.GetAdjective] Supreme Privy Council has decided to publicly support her as our new ruler, hoping that she will become a figurehead or at least malleable enough to allow them to rule through her. A set of laws that will limit her powers is being drafted, prohibiting Anna to start war, call for peace, create new taxes, or promote individuals to high ranks. Nor will she be able to punish nobility without trial, grant estates or villages, promote anyone to court office, and she will not be able to spend the revenue generated by the state. Eight hundred noblemen have heard the rumors of Anna's possible ascent to the throne and have signed a petition that will urge her to continue to rule $COUNTRY$ in an autocratic style and to continue to carry out Peter the Great's political, social, and economic advances. We doubt that Anna will become a figurehead, nor will she be easy to control. She was brought to the [Root.GetAdjective] court early in life, making her well prepared to handle political structure. With the favor of the Imperial guards and the lesser nobility, Anna will get her way.

During the reign of Sultan Selim II, Nurbanu Sultan was his favorite consort and wife. Born in Venice and named Rachel Olivia de Nasi, she was abducted and taken to Prince Selim's royal harem where she was renamed Afife Nurbanu Sultan. Her beauty and intelligence, and the fact that she was the mother of the heir-apparent, made her husband ask her for advice as he respected her good judgement in various subjects. When her husband died, her son Murad was away, serving as Governor. Nurbanu realized that his abscence had created the prefect opportunity for someone else to seize the throne, with the Sultan dead and his son away from the capital. Fortunately for her and her son, Selim II had died in the harem and as security and privacy was strict, no one knew of his death. She kept it a secret, hid the body in an icebox and sent words to her son to return to the capital. Murad arrived twelve days later and with the death of Selim made public, their son became Sultan and Nurbanu became Queen Mother or Valide Sultan. Nurbanu is now a formidable figure with great power and far-reaching influence. Her management of the government is very effective and her diplomatic skills impressive.

Heo Yeop, the father of the poet Heo Nanseolheon, is a conservative official with Confucian beliefs such as namjon-yubi - men above, women below. Ignoring her budding talent and curiosity, he left it to her brother Heo Pong to introduce her to literature. The 'Inscriptions on the Ridge Pole of the White Jade Pavilion in the Kwanghan Palace' was written by her when she was only eight years old, earning her the epithet 'Immortal Maiden' as it was recognized as a work of poetic genius. Heo Pong introduced her to Chinese writing such as the Confucian Five Classics when she showed a natural talent for hanum verse. Forced into exile because of his political leanings, Heo Pong left her further education in the hands of their younger brother Heo Gyun. He was a gifted poet who studied under a specialist of Tang poetry, Yi Tal, who took it upon him to share Tang Poetry with Nanseolheon. Tang poetry has influenced her work, shown in the naturalism of her poetry. When Nanseolheon married Kim Seongnip her poetry started to lament the plight and sufferings of married women. Her early literature employed folklore and natural imagery, common to Tang tradition, but now her poetry is weighted down with an emotive language.

Though she was his third wife, as mother of the heir-apparent Mariam-uz-Zamani took precedence over Akbar's other wives. She is a hindu and her marriage to Akbar led him to look more favorable on Hinduism and his Hindu subjects. It also gave Akbar the powerful support of her family throughout his reign, and with the marriage to a Hindu Rajput princess he signaled that he would be the Badshah of his whole people, no matter their religion. Few women in court has ever been granted the right to issue farman, official documents which are usually the exclusive privilege of the emperor, but Akbar trusted Mariam-uz-Zamani enough to grant her that privilege. She used her title Wali Nimat Begam - the Gift of God - when she issued farmans. With her wealth amassed from her international trade in spices, silk and many other wares, she builds gardens, wells, and mosques.
