    In the end, her fight against the Dutch couldn't prevent them from conquering Aceh.
    The Dutch during her time saw her as no better than the way we view 'jihadists' nowadays.
    Her leadership status in a male-dominated culture made her an early pioneer of feminism.
    She was renowned for her beauty, and many men attempted to propose to her until her parents settled for Teuku Ibrahim Lamnga.
    Her two husbands were killed in action during the war against the Dutch.
    She suffered from arthritis and myopia as she got older.
    'Tjoet Nja' Dhien' won the Cannes Film Festival award for Best International Film. (1989)
