This tiny yet majestic volume introduces us to some 250 queens who ruled in their own right—who were crowned as the sovereigns of their countries or, in some cases, decided to crown themselves.

It begins with queens of the ancient world and ends with those ruling today, encompassing along the way both household names, like Elizabeth I and Catherine the Great, and those who deserve to be better known, like Margaret I of Denmark and Ranavalona I of Madagascar. Each queen is represented by her portrait—painted, carved, engraved, or photographed—and an interesting fact about her reign. This Tiny FolioTM will be the perfect gift for the powerful women in your life.
