Queen Candace

When Alexander the Great arrived in ancient Egypt with his armies in 332 B.C., it is said that he stopped short at the border of Ethiopia because Queen Candace, the Empress of that land, was such an accomplished and renowned military tactician and field commander that he didn’t want to risk being beaten at that juncture of his rampage. When he learned that this in-your-face woman was in personal command of her troops, he took his unbroken record of victories and went elsewhere. Smart man.
