    A little confused about definitions of strength but I'll take a crack at it.

    Jael, Biblical, and the one who slammed a tent peg through somebody's head.
    Zenobia Ancient warrior, considerably more usable imo than the related Xena
    Grace (O'Malley)
    Harriet (Tubman)
    Sojourner (Truth)
    Golda (Meir)

    Oh and I hear there were one or two reigning monarchs named Elizabeth and Catherine

    Can't forget those monarchs, can we? People keep mentioning them all the time.

    I love the lists! Just your definition of strength, usually of character, although I guess physical strength works too!
