Woman Ruler: Woman Rule
by Elin Sand, iUniverse.com, 2001.

Read about 27 rulers from the legendary Near Eastern Queen Semiranmis to the Brazil's Candomble high priestess Oba Biyi. Each chapter begins with a fictional biographic account told through the words, as much as possible, of the ruler herself and those of her contemporaries. The author then provides full historical background for her subject, which includes a bibliography for further readings and primary source materials. Original illustrations reflecting the art of the period and a 23 page appendix containing a list of women rulers round out the resource.
