Praise For All Hail the Queen: Twenty Women Who Ruled (Royal Biographies, Famous Queens, Famous Women in History)

“Writer Shweta Jha contributed the text for this intriguing book, which tracks the careers of Cleopatra, Catherine the Great, Elizabeth I, and Marie Antoinette, as well as those of less familiar figures, like Japanese ruler Himiko and Maya queen Lady Six Sky. Some were born monarchs; others achieved eminence through marriage. Nearly all of them—as is only fitting for a queen—led operatic existences filled with incident and spectacle. Jennifer Orkin Lewis’s lush, colorful artwork gives readers a sense of the time and place that produced each leader—and of what the lady herself might have looked like.… Perfectly suited to its subject matter, this regal volume has golden endpapers and a cover that sparkles.” —BookPage
