Women in the Middle Ages were docile, meek and subservient. Or at least that's what we were led to believe. But that isn't always the case. In previous lessons we looked at Black Agnes, the defender of Dunbar Castle and Melisende, the Queen of Jerusalem. Women like Joan of Arc, Isabella, the She-Wolf of France and Eleanor of Aquitaine are examples of powerful women in the Middle Ages. Today we are going to look at more women who broke the stereotype and proved to be strong, powerful leaders and commanders. You can call them warriors, but you might not want to call them Warrior Princess! If you are enjoying the podcast please considering leaving a rating on iTunes.
