Elizabeth I   Was the fifth and final monarch of the Tudor dynasty, having succeeded her half-sister, Mary to the throne. She reigned during a period of turmoil in English history. A reign today referred as the Elizabethan Era or the Golden Age. It was marked by increases in English power and influence worldwide. It produced playwrights William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe, and Ben Jonson. Francis Drake became the first Englishman to circle the globe. Francis Bacon laid out his philosophical and political views and English colonization of North America took place under Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Humphrey Gilbert. The English colony in the new world, Virginia, was named in honor of the Queen. Elizabeth, the last of the Tudors, died at seventy years of age after a very successful forty-four year reign

Hatshepsut was the fifth pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of ancient Egypt. She is generally regarded by Egyptologists as one of the most successful female pharaohs of Egypt, who reigned longer than any other female ruler of an indigenous dynasty.

Totally agree with you Dottie!  :-*

Franka Potente! She came to fame as Lola in Tom Tykwer's Run Lola, Run! and has appeared in many good movies since. In an interview she said that her US agent always tells her she should loose weight in order to get more roles, but she gives a shit. Lol. A female heroine, don't ya think?  ;)

 



S'alright, s'alright!

I love Franka.  I very much enjoyed her in the 'Bourne' movies.  Even my ex-boyfriend liked her because according to him, 'she looked like a normal person'.  In other words, the casting director of 'Bourne' chose an actor for the female lead who wasn't just a bombshell babe.
