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.
