    A singular exception a woman is often acknowledged the absolute sovereign of a great kingdom in which she would be deemed incapable of exercising the smallest employment civil or military Gibbon Decline and Fall of the Roman EmpireMy first Antonia Fraser history book An experience filled with pleasant surprise regarding the level of research that went into it view spoilerMy prior knowledge of Fraser was limited to her writing popular history books hide spoiler

    I finished this book and exhaled loudly while screaming FINALLY Finally it is over I am stubborn and when I hit the halfway point I refused to uit But good God this book is dry And long My brain felt like a glazed donut when I read than 30 pages in a sitting Maybe I am just not bright enough to appreciate itBut I'm giving it three stars for a few reasons 1 I now know about Caterina Sforza taunting soldiers who were about to kill her children by lifting her skirt to show her pregnancy and saying You fools Don't you know that I can make ? Brilliant My life is forever richer; 2 ueen Nzinga Enough said; 3 A few choice anecdotes about the remaining ueens that I couldn't help but read aloud to anyone within earshot One star for each spark of joyComplaints 1 Focuses way too briefly on non European ueens; drags and drags when it comes to European ueens; 2 Dry So dry Engaging history is all about creating narrative out of facts and tidbits Fraser is good at this 15% of the time and awful the other 85%; 3 Though her analysis was sharp naming the facets of historical ueendom syndromes eg Appendage Syndrome makes them sound like diseases I still can't believe I am done reading this book I thought it would never ever end

    Surprisingly in depth considering that this is a book that examines many subjects Fraser examines both the history in facts and the way in which warrior ueens have been presented as social entities Very thoroughly researched and referenced although it must be noted that some information is not up to date which is not surprising given the release date of the latest edition

    I stopped reading this book after 233 pages about 23 finished because life is too short to read bad books This is only the second book in the last 8 years I have failed to finish without plans to try again The first few chapters are dry analysis of what it means to be a Warrior ueen and it doesn't pick up pace until 13 of the way into the book Then it tries to tell the stories of these Warrior ueens with a chapter apiece but the author insists on comparing everybody to Boadicea both the legend and the historical figure I had to stop when halfway into Jinga's chapter there wasn't any information provided on this character Most of the information presented was the use of Boadicea in literature throughout history Why wasn't that included in Boadicea's chapter?The author also gets bits of history wrong Isabella's family tree as she explains the succession You can't forget a daughter and assign her son to a different daughter This isn't The Tudors I have read long history books Postwar Dreadnought The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich etc and have never come across book as tedious and repetitive nor with the same appalling lack of organization It was absolutely frustrating to read about all the syndromes these women had while ignoring the rich detail or their lives The lack of detail is understandable in the earliest stories where there is little written history andor it is unreliable but I expected the stories to include detail as the book progressed and that simply didn't happenDon't completely give up on Fraser her biography on Marie Antoinette is excellent and she probably should adapted that format for this book sort histories of Warrior ueens and their achievements This book probably really deserves a 2 but since I couldn't bring myself to finish it I had to rate it a 1


  5. Sarah Finch Sarah Finch says:

    This is one of the most intelligent and thoughtful books I have read in a long while Using Boudica Boadicea as her starting point Antonia Fraser traces a loose chronology of warrior ueens from Zenobia to ueen Isabella to Golda Meir and Indira Gandhi The final chapter or two on Margaret Thatcher is particularly insightful Along the way she discusses how sexuality maternity and religion have shaped the conversations surrounding these women for generations as well as the Appendage Syndrome wherein a female ruler can only validate her reign through her ties to a strong male This is a great read and one not at all outdated by the twenty some years that have passed since its publication in 1988


  6. Carol Storm Carol Storm says:

    WARRIOR UEENS is okay but Lady Antonia obviously likes the modern ueens than the ancient ones She spends as much time on parades and pageantry in the 19th century where symbolic warrior ueens just bless the troops and appear in very becoming but only sort of military poses as she does on actual fighting women in the ancient world like Boudica of England It's also noticeable that with Boudica Lady Antonia plays down the bloody war and butchery and plays up the Roman era that came later She mentions several times that other Britannic warrior ueens names not mentioned were peacable marrying Roman governors and building Roman style villas with beautiful artwork and frescoes which still catch the eye today Indeed the image she gives of that time period is that most upper class women willingly chose the comforts and luxuries of life as a Roman lady to the blood and grime of constant war Warlike Boudica was probably the exception rather than the rule In fact Lady Antonia uotes several Roman sources saying that the daughters of the fierce British tribes were uick to adapt Roman customs bathing and finery so much so that they were often accused of being Roman than their Roman husbandsThis book is okay overall but instead of being a story of warriors it really describes women rulers who sometimes presented themselves in military roles


  7. Charli Charli says:

    I barely got to the end of this book which was surprising as I'm a great fan of Fraser's work ordinarily However I found the structure of this book somewhat convoluted and confusing and it didn't really give the insight I was expecting on key female historical figuresFraser has based the book around the history of Iceni ueen BoadiceaBoudica a fascinating story however almost half of the book is about her which is surprising as so little is known of the 1st century AD ueen This means that the prose tends to digress from the subject at hand and is therefore difficult to keep track ofAlso when Fraser then writes of other historic 'warrior ueens' she continually relates back to Boadicea which provides some interesting viewpoints not ordinarily explored especially for Elizabeth I my personal favourite historical figure here Saying this some of the biography of these women is then lost in the telling as the prose again feels to drift without adding any value to the tellingAll in all some very interesting viewpoints in this book however personally speaking not exactly what I was expecting Definitely a good read for ancient history enthusiasts rather than any era current though


  8. Yasmin Yasmin says:

    It was an okay book but I have to say the author's continous usage of syndrome did make one think that there was something wrong with the women Also a little too much of warrior women in the European world and not so much with other countries I guess in the 80s her research was limited but even so there must have been other women known then like Nurjahan during the Mughual period of India and I can't believe there was only one ueen to cite in Africa And I didn't have that much interest in reading about Margaret Thatcher none at all in fact Nor was I that compelled for Indira Ghandi I think I'll leave my own personal politics out of this as it is a book review and not a political debate


  9. Carolina Casas Carolina Casas says:

    An account of all the warrior women who left their mark on history and why some were successful and others weren't The warrior ueens who earned their reputation as fearsome and holy were only because they evoked popular sentiment of unity and religion and perpetuated the stereotype of the weak and feeble woman Elizabeth and feminine virtues of chastity homeliness Golda Meyer Louise of Prussia ueen Tamara of Georgiaetc and religious fervor Isabel before she was married and after she married and a tool that she used against 'La Beltraneja' her niece Juana whom she always held was not her brother's daughter In using rebelling against the norm while perpetuating the stereotype of the weak and virtuous female these monarchs and rulers managed to keep their positions and become celebrated icons to this day; while those who refused to play by the rules were slandered publicly and physically humiliated and some of them were forced to take their lives such as Boudicca Cleopatra etc or die in battle the Rani of Jhani It's an engrossing account that doesn't end with a simple everything is okay now but makes the points that many of these attitudes on women have changed very little and women leaders today still have to use certain stereotypes to be accepted

    Couldn't resist this one what with all the gender power issues swirling around Hillary Clinton's bid for President Also must read anything given a thumbs up by Margaret Atwood because she is an absolute literary goddess a mon avis But in the end I felt that Fraser attempted to cover too much ground between the covers of this book I would have appreciated reading about fewer subject but in greater depth Also as a non Brit I was not previously familiar with the story of Boadiccea and it was difficult to piece it all together from the author's non linear storytelling Nevertheless it was an informative read and it has profoundly influenced my perspective as an observer of and a voter for women in positions of leadership
