Friday Art & History Feature - Great Women of History

Today, I give you a little preview of some of the feauture Friday History posts I will write during the year. These are the portraits of great women of history that I find fascinating and that I intentend to write about this year for the blog feature.

These women lived in different eras, different countries and within different cultures. Yet they all made an impact on history and on humanity that cannot be denied. Some are well known, while others may not be. They were all strong and fascinating personalities.

  1. Can't wait for these! Especially interested in Josephine Bonaparte. (Was just studying Napoleon in class, and we didn't really get into his first wife in great detail)
