The Women Who Dared to Rule

For nearly a century after the First Crusade captured Jerusalem, that ancient city became the nucleus of a several kingdoms and principalities established by the crusaders. At the political, social, and cultural heart of their subsequent history were a series of remarkable women who exercised power and influence in a way nearly unknown in western Europe at that time.

Katherine Pangonis is the author of the Queens of Jerusalem: The Women Who Dared to Rule (Pegasus Books, 2022), a remarkable chronicle of lives lived in times of extreme danger and immense complexity.
