Medieval and Early Modern Women at War, a Few Notable Examples:

Aethelflaed of Mercia (statue pictured above) ruled part of England from 911 to 918. She was a formidable military tactician and defended her territory from the Vikings.

Emma Queen of the Franks, defended Laon in 927, and led a successful siege against Chateau Thierry in 933. She died in 934 whilst on a military campaign.

Empress Matilda and Matilda of Boulogne both commanded opposing armies during the Anarchy, a civil war that had England in chaos from 1135 to 1154.

Joan of Arc (portrait in armour above), a French peasant girl, became a military leader in the early 15th century, leading the French army in several successful battles against the English army in the last stages of the Hundred Years’ War.

Margaret of Anjou, married the simpleminded Henry VI of England in 1445 and educated her young son in “cutting off heads and making war.” She was a pivotal figure in the Wars of the Roses.

Note: wearable armour weighs from 15 - 28 kgs (35 - 60 lbs).

Trust Me (1862). John Everett Millais (English, 1829-96). Oil on canvas.
The letter creates a confrontational divide between father and daughter. The elderly father does not approve of the nature of the letter that his daughter safeguards from him. With a symbol of authority (the riding crop with whip), the father says, “Trust me.” Or, perhaps, the woman defies her father with the words, “Trust me,” as the crocuses blossom to indicate the spring of love.
