An important lesson from history for Women's History Month

I’ve begun research for a historical novel about Queen Urraca of Spain (1079-1126). She led an eventful life.

One thing I’ve learned so far: even if you’re an emperor, do not abuse your wife if she’s capable of raising her own sizeable, independent army.
