Queen of Sheba
Power - The strategist
The Queen of Sheba is the only female character who appears in all three holy books of the Abrahamic faiths – the Torah, the Quran and the Bible (Kings 1:10 and Chronicles 2:9). C. 1300 CE - c. 1400 CE are the approximate dates for composition of the Kebra Negast which includes the most elaborate retelling of the tale of the Queen of Sheba, mother of Ethiopia and said to be one of the greatest and powerful antique queen.
Stories tell of her undefeated, formidable army, her shrewd business sense and her relationship with King Solomon.
