Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em. This well-known maxim, from a playwright who created and recast many royal women, describes the great women of history as neatly as it does the men. Not all royal women rise to the challenge of their times: some flub their lines and others become intolerable prima donnas. But some, whether raised in palaces or in the slaves quarters, seize the reins of power with an aplomb that steals the show, pushing male contenders into the wings. This deck of 48 cards introduces the world s most memorable queens, empresses, advisers, concubines, and royal mistresses, as well as two female emperors and a female pharaoh.
