*Emer needs a dang eyepatch!* Doña Ana de Mendoza y de la Cerda, Princess of Eboli, Duchess of Pastrana, (29 June 1540 – 2 February 1592).
Ana de Mendoza y de la Cerda, princesa de Éboli, duquesa de Pastrana y condesa de Mélito, (Cifuentes, Guadalajara, 29 de junio de 1540 - Pastrana, 2 de febrero de 1592) fue una aristócrata española.

It's About Time: 1500s Gossip - The Princess, the Ruff, & the Eyepatch - Ana de Mendoza y de la Cerda was an outrageously wealthy Spanish aristocrat, born on 29 June 1540. She was considered one of the greatest beauties of her day in Europe, even though she lost an eye in a sword fight with one of her father's young pages. Perhaps the eyepatch made her more intriguing. She married at the age of 12 to Ruy Gómez de Silva, Prince of Eboli.
eye patch Doña Ana de Mendoza y de la Cerda - Princess of Eboli & Duchess of Pastrana
Aunque es más conocida como la Princesa de Éboli, su nombre fue Ana de Mendoza y de la Cerda. Nació en Cifuentes el año 1540, y murió en Pastrana en 1592. Hija de Diego Hurtado de Mendoza, conde de Melito. Contrajo matrimonio en 1552, que no se llegaría a consumar hasta siete años más tarde, con Ruy Gómez de Silva, príncipe de Éboli. Cuando al morir su esposo en 1573 se retiró al convento carmelita de Pastrana, era dueña de una gran fortuna. En el convento que fundara Santa Teresa a petición suya, pasó tres años especialmente agitados. Allí se impuso el nombre de Ana de la Madre de Dios y creó infinidad de problemas tanto a las monjas como a la madre fundadora, de manera que hubo de intervenir el monarca, Felipe II, aconsejándole que abandonase el convento y dedicara su vida a la atención de sus hijos, que fueron diez. Poco después regresó de nuevo a la Corte. La leyenda nos la presenta hermosa, aunque tuerta de un ojo por accidente infantil ocurrido junto al castillo de Cifuentes. La leyenda negra la convierte en amante del rey Felipe II, y de su secretario Antonio Pérez, con quien mantuvo secretas negociaciones de orden político. Parece ser que el monarca, al conocer algunas de estas secretas escaramuzas, ordenó la detención de Antonio Pérez y de la propia Princesa de Éboli el 28 de julio de 1579, con lo que desapareció de raíz el que bien se hubiera podido llamar Partido Ebolista. Doña Ana de Mendoza estuvo encerrada en la fortaleza de Santorcaz durante dos años, y a partir de 1581 fue confinada a su palacio de Pastrana, en donde permaneció hasta su muerte acaecida en febrero de 1592. Los restos mortales de la Princesa de Éboli, así como los de su esposo Ruy Gómez de Silva, se encuentran en el panteón familiar de la colegiata de Pastrana, mandada reconstruir por su hijo el obispo Fray Pedro González de Mendoza.
Hind al-Hunnud was the ‘Battle Queen’ of the Quarish tribe of the kingdom of Kindah. In Arabic culture women played an important role in battle, some of the earliest roots of Arabic culture lay in the cult of the ‘battle queen’ and of tribal warfare. The battle queen mounted upon a camel led the armies into battle as commander in chief or field general. She fought Mohammad in the Battle of Badr in 724, and accounts describe her as ‘brandishing a broadsword with great gusto’.
