    There are so many, but certain Anglo-Saxon abbesses are very prominent in my mind, such as Eanflaed, Hild and Leoba.

    Many. Greta Garbo for example. Such a role model.







    Plus, the classic shield-maiden warrior from the sagas like Brynhild, Hervor and an endless etc.

    The Norns who weave everyone's fate were also very powerful female symbols in Norse mythology. So too was Hel ... nobody could defeat her!

    As far as real-life heroines are concerned, Joan of Arc and Boudicca are two that come instantly to mind. Joan of Arc was the more successful of the two.
