Sultana Pongyan Juchi Jamela: 19th Century Serial Killer

Excerpt of an account written originally in 1898 describing Sultana Pangyan Inchi Jamela:

The Sultana was not, perhaps, so commonplace a  woman as some others. We were told that she had become the wife of the previous Sultan, after having killed two husbands; that she was not his first wife, but that the present Sultan was her son;  that she had put him in succession to the throne by the simple process of poisoning his elder brother and sister, who were not her children, and their mother;  and that she had then poisoned her husband, which  made her son the Sultan.

[Rear-Admiral Bradley A. Fiske, War time in Manila, Richard G. Badger, The Gorham Press, Boston, 1913, p. 258]
