Sultana Khadeejah of the Maldives, 14th Century Serial Killer


The Maldives have had a few women in charge but [Sultana] Khadija [or Khadeejah] was one you wouldn’t forget. She probably came to power after murdering young brother. In 1363 her husband tried to take over so she killed him too. Ten years later her second husband tried the same thing and me a similar fate.

[from the chapter titled “Yeah, but girl leaders are soft, aren’t they?” in children’s book by  Sandi Toksvig, Girls Are the Best, Doubleday, 2008, p. 169]
