Page 21 from Queens with illustration of the Queen of Sheba
Page 63 of Queens with illustration of Suiko, consort and empress of Japan



This tiny yet majestic volume introduces some 250 queens from around the world―those who inherited the throne by birth or marriage, or who seized it for themselves. It begins with queens of the ancient world and ends with those ruling today, encompassing both household names, like Cleopatra VII and Elizabeth I, and those who deserve to be better known, like Margaret I and Nzinga. Each queen is represented by her portrait―painted, carved, engraved, or photographed―and an interesting fact about her reign. This Tiny Folio™ will be the perfect gift for the powerful women in your life. Hardcover; 320 pages.
