Aethelflaed: Warrior Queen of Mercia

Aethelflaed: Warrior Queen of Mercia:
In 911, Aethelflaed, daughter of King Alfred the Great (871-99), succeeded her husband, Aethelred, as ruler of the midland realm of Mercia. In doing so she became one of the only Anglo-Saxon women to rule in her ownright, and a key player in the period that would shape the formation of England.

Nice article about another woman who acted as a warrior
