History’s Outstanding Women
Tutor: Michele Mycock
Margaret Christie Studio
In 43-1798 several women made a substantial impact on the world. Some were heroic, others were rebellious or brilliant in different ways. One woman became the most powerful person in Europe & another defeated Viking invaders in every battle she commanded. A child prostitute rose to become an Empress; while a polymath & mystic became a famous writer who also composed music still being performed today.
