Her Majesty: An Illustrated Guide to the Women who Ruled the World
Published February 17th 2015 by Xist Publishing
BLURB: This illustrated guide to famous (and infamous) queens tells us that power isn't everything. Each of the extraordinary women featured in this book have impacted world history. Featuring the bold and beautiful style of Lisa Graves' Women in History series, this book is sure to become a classroom, library and household favorite for parents and educators who want to show that being a princess or a queen means much more than fancy dresses and fairy tale eendings.

This is a look at the biography of some queens throughout world history, some quite well-known as Queen Elizabeth, and others not so much as Lakṣmībāī.
Is this aimed at a teen audience? I'm not sure, but the language is complicated for younger children. I had some problems to see some characters in the color of some pages, but that can be a problem of my pdf copy.
Anyway, it does not contribute much to what you can be found in wiki, with enough known data and trivia. But maybe that can point you to go looking for more things about some character you did not know?
Nice pictures. But I'm sorry, I was not impressed.
(I miss Sultana Kosem in this look at remarkable women ;) )
Ah, y Juana la Loca probablemente fue recluida solamente para quitarla del camino del trono , y no por estar enferma como decian :/
