Princess Nest aka Nest ferch Rhys came from a very long line of Welsh warriors and kings. However, in her lifetime things took a big shift. There is more that we DON'T know about her life, but what we know for certain is that she is one of the only women from medieval Wales to be more than a passing footnote in history. In fact, it's said that her beauty caused a civil war. Okay, no. Men started the civil war, but whatever. That's not as poetic. But does she deserve the title of the Welsh Helen of Troy?

Welcome back, Beautiful Queens! Today's episode is all about the fascinating life of Empress Cixi of China. She was one of the most powerful women in Chinese history. Cixi was born in 1835 in a small village in China. She was intelligent and resourceful, and she quickly caught the attention of the emperor's court. At the age of 16, Cixi was selected to be one of the emperor's concubines. This was a great honor, but it also came with a lot of challenges. Cixi had to navigate the complicated politics of the imperial court, and she had to compete with other concubines for the emperor's attention. Despite these challenges, Cixi was able to rise through the ranks and become one of the most powerful women in China. She was known for her intelligence, her political savvy, and her ability to get things done. ---------------------- Thank you Hello Fresh so much for your support.

Yolande of Aragon

Yolande of Aragon

2023-11-1556:59

Who was Yolande of Aragon, you ask? Only one of the most fascinating women in history. She was the Duchess of Anjou, Countess of Maine, and Queen of Naples. But she was more than just a political figure. Yolande was known for her intelligence and strategic thinking, often advising her husband and sons on matters of state. She was also a patron of the arts and a keen supporter of the poet Christine de Pisan. But perhaps Yolande's most interesting role was as a rumored practitioner of the dark arts. Some historians have suggested that she dabbled in witchcraft, using her powers to help her family in times of need. Whether true or not, Yolande of Aragon is a woman worth knowing.

Today we are discussing the one and only Queen of Rock n Roll, Tina Turner. BUT OMG CONTENT WARNING, Y'ALL. If you are not in a place to listen to a story that includes a couple of different types of abuse, then this won't be the episode for you. Come back and meet up with us in 2 weeks when we discuss the second part of her life. Anyway. Born Anna Mae Bullock Nutbush, Tennessee in 1939, Turner's childhood wasn't exactly a chill one. Tina experienced abandonment from a young age, but found herself living a rock n roll lifestyle by the age of 17 when she met the charismatic Ike Turner. For better or for worse, she was tied to Ike for the next 16 years while experiencing some of the highest highs and lowest lows of her life.

Rani of Jhansi, part 2

Rani of Jhansi, part 2

2023-05-3158:51

And we're back to finish up the story of the nearly legendary Rani of Jhansi, aka Rani Lakshmibai. (You can listen to part 1 here) When we last left her, she was a new widow in an uncertain time while the rebellion was spreading through India as the 1857 Indian rebellion grew more widespread. But our girl did not start out a revolutionary. In fact, if things had gone just slightly differently she would have never rebelled at all. This episode delves into the debates around whether the Rani of Jhansi genuinely cooperated with the British or was playing a long game, waiting for them to let their guard down. There are few personal records of her thoughts and feelings, leaving much speculation around her intentions and actions. She led her army into battle and fought fiercely, earning the respect of both her allies and enemies. Despite facing numerous challenges, she never wavered in her commitment to her people and her country. Despite being a controversial and complex historical figure, the Rani of Jhansi is remembered for her bravery and contribution to Indian history. Today, she is remembered as a symbol of resistance and female empowerment in Indian history. What a wonderful way to finish up our season 6.

Have you ever heard of Rani of Jhansi? She's sometimes referred to as India's Joan of Arc, so you know we're discussing a Warrior Queen Rani of Jhansi, also known as Rani Lakshmibai, was one of the most prominent figures in the Indian Rebellion of 1857. But today, we're learning about how she got there. She was born in 1828 in Varanasi, India (probably?). Manu (as her family called her) was a Scorpio and it shows. Hard headed to the core with an independent streak, the future Rani of Jhansi did not have a conventional childhood. Manu was married at a young age to the Maharaja (king) of Jhansi and from there her story gets pretty wild. Rani of Jhansi was a remarkable figure in Indian history, who fought against the British Empire and became an icon of resistance and freedom. Her story is a testament to the power of courage, determination, and leadership in the face of adversity. So, join us as we learn what lead to her life taking this crazy turn.

Rerun: Aretha Franklin

Rerun: Aretha Franklin

2023-05-0301:22:07

Today, we are here to give a little Respect to a queen we think you’re really going to love. No, not our usual kind of queen, but just as fascinating. She may not have had a coronation, but she is regal through and through. Of course, we’re talking about the one and only Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. Her story is one of ups and downs and lots… and LOTS of Katy and Nathan singing off-key (since we are far too poor to afford the rights to the actual music) (guys, we’re really sorry). And what’s a good sing-along without a fancy cocktail? Nathan serves up some diva realness with a drink called The Soul Kiss Cocktail. This episode is a rerun from 2021. but is such an amazing story, we thought it stood the test of time. Some sources we used are: This Rolling Stone article was instrumental in writing this episode. This Pitchfork review gave us a lot of insight into some of Aretha’s lesser-known work. Wikipedia because we’re only humans with day-time jobs. Aretha singing at MLK’s funeral. Thanks HelloFresh!

I really want to love this, but it's a little all over the place. I'd love a little more narrative cadence.

hi, just letting you know that as her surname is spelled Bathroy in the title, if you are a sicko like me and searching for Elizabeth Bathory as a subject, it doesn't come up. I had to find you guys accidentally!! Thanks, Sarah

Holy Roman Empire aka HRE is what's left of Charlemagne's empire which was seen as the Roman empire reborn basically by Charlemagne basically conquered/ united western Europe. Anyway by this time HRE is basically Germany and the countries that border it except for France and Italy
