Princesses Behaving Badly: Real Stories from History Without the Fairy-Tale Endings - Linda Rodriguez McRobbie

Can I just express how happy I am that the majority of the "princesses" are actually non-white: ranis, pharaohs, khans. My favorite has been Emperor(ess) Wu. Extremely interesting how she rose to power and reigned prosperously for 50 years, but was buried without honors and slandered after death. Patriarchy, hooray.
