  2. hello,
    I do not think the TV series xena is based on the Queen Amina of Zaria. I don’t found interview where creators say that. I don’t found the character Xena and her history really looks like this woman. I think I am correct when I say that the character and the series were inspired by the mythological Greek and Hercules ….

    • There was an article stating that the creators were inspired by Queen Amina of Zaria floating around online years ago. I’m assuming it has been taken down.

      The truth of the matter is that unlike Hercules who anyone who knows something about Greek mythology knows, there are no Greek myths or tales surrounding any Amazonian woman named ‘Xena’. Xena’s character is completely fictional so it is not impossible that a badass woman from African history was the source of her inspiration.

  5. Hi,
    I don’t know where to start so I’ll probably just introduce myself : 27 YO journalist from Dakar, Senegal, and proud owner of a fledging of an Etsy shop… Anyways, I’d like to know if you’d agree I send you a freeby bracelet by post mail in exchange for you to give me a teensy review on your blog (that I’m a enthousiast follower of, btw)?
    Cheers!

  6. Am a grand daughter to womam to woman marriage. I can confirm there is no homosexuality/lesbianism involved it is solely for procreation and sustaining a lineage. Particularly where there are no male sons. Baren women cld also marry women. Their husbands were allowed to procreate with them and any children were classed as the baren womans children with her husband.

    • Hello there! I agree that the institution of woman-woman marriage was for procreation and sustaining a lineage, I said as much in my post. I’ve heard from other people who have woman-woman relationships in their families, and they haven’t been able to confirm that there was no homosexuality involved ;)

      So thank you for your confirmation but it looks like some women may have taken advantage of the institution in ways that the hetero-patriarchy would never imagine.

I appreciate feedback but please keep to topic.
