AFRICANGLOBE - Women may be considered as the weaker gender in some cultures, but our wealthy history records strong women who rose to power and greater heights than many male leaders who could only dream of it. In fact, according to Greek records, the first amazons were from Libya, a name that anciently, was used to refer to the whole of North Africa. Some of these amazons, like the Amazon of Dahomey, had troops that solely had female fighters. And if women could fight and defeat male warriors, then there’s nothing that could stop them from earning the same respect as men as far as leadership is concerned. To take you through what the African history holds on women, we have compiled a list of 5 Most Powerful African Queens from History.
