Great Women Rulers 12” Ruler

Women rule! This clever wooden ruler features a list of some of history’s most renowned women leaders. The ruler has inches and centimeters on one side and the list of women “rulers” on the other.

Most of the women listed on this ruler were actual rulers, either by accession or by election, with two exceptions: Joan of Arc (1412-1431), who led the French army at age 18, and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), who was never elected to a position, but for five years chaired the UN Commission on Human Rights.

The dates listed are the years of each woman’s birth and death, if known.

All of these women are notable in their own right. You might enjoy reading more about Boadicea (also “Boudica” or “Boudicca”), the 1st century AD Celtic warrior queen who led an uprising against occupying forces of the Roman Empire, or about Liliuokalani (1838-1917), the last sovereign monarch of the Kingdom of Hawai’i before the islands were annexed by the United States.

The “head” image is of Elizabeth I of England (1533-1603), who became queen in 1558. The illustration is based on the Ermine Portrait of 1585, attributed to either Nicholas Hilliard (c.1547-1619) or William Segar (c.1554-1633), and now to be seen at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, England.
