World Leader
    (circa 240- )
    (Circa 240 AD)
    Original name in Aramaic was Znwbya Bat Zabbai
    Queen of Palmyra (now in modern-day Syria) from 267 to 272 AD
    Ascended the throne for her infant son when her husband Odenathus was assassinated
    Rebelled against the Roman Empire and created her own kingdom by conquering Syria, Egypt, and Asia Minor (Turkey)
    She claimed to be a descendant of Cleopatra (probably false).
    This claim compelled her to conquer Egypt.
    When the Romans captured her, they took her to Rome where she was paraded around shackled in gold chains.
    She was a tolerant ruler.
    Emperor Aurelian spared her life due to the fact she was a woman.
    She was known for her toughness and was able to march along with male soldiers for miles.
    In addition to her native Aramaic, she also spoke Greek, Latin, and Egyptian.
    The Emperor presented her with a Roman villa, where she settled down peacefully and eventually married a Roman senator.
