A children's book (ages 10 and up) about the Roman empresses that should appeal to anyone interested in Roman history and women's studies because of the full color portraits based on actual sculptures. This book presents stories of some of the most famous and powerful women of ancient times, including Livia, Antonia, the Agrippinas, Domitia, Plotina, Sabina, the Faustinas, Julia Domna, Julia Mamaea, and Helena. Though ancient authors routinely accused these women of various crimes, a close look at the evidence reveals acts of heroism and personal sacrifice that benefited the Roman people. They were among the most powerful and influential women in history - and it is time that their true stories are heard.
