10 Greatest Women Leaders In History

The Top Ten
1 Cleopatra Cleopatra VII Philopator, known to history simply as Cleopatra, was the last active pharaoh of Ptolemaic Egypt. After her reign, Egypt became a province of the recently established Roman Empire.

Cleopatra is so pretty I am going to be her for Halloween

2 Queen Victoria Victoria was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 20 June 1837 until her death.

By far greatest leader man or women.

3 Joan Of Arc Joan of Arc, nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans", is considered a heroine of France for her role during the Lancastrian phase of the Hundred Years' War, and was canonized as a Roman Catholic saint. ...read more.

Joan was a common girl who rallied an army to mighty victories with little or no education with only her faith in God.

Saint Joan of Arc is a great military leader.

Cleopatra pretty much got Egypt invaded

Joan should be number 1! Cleopatra VII [ I'm assuming its cleopatra VII at least as she is the most known] was one of the worst leaders ever. She anf marc anthonys made so many poor decisions regarding the roman empire and octavion that they basically destroyed the Egyptian civilization as it was consumed by the roman empire. Plus there is considerable evidence that she actually was quite unattractive so you might want reconsider being her for Halloween top commenter. Out of all these woman joan had to endure the most hardship. As if overcoming the English was a hard enough challenge, she was lower class and female, 2 of the roughest positions to be in during the middle ages. On this list I see only Rosa Parks as comparable as she had to overcome similar challenges but she did not put an end to racial segregation in 1950s America as joan did to English rule in 1400s France, rosa parks only triggered the movement that did.

4 Cathrine The Great

There were only 2 greats for Russia! and the other one is great for naming a city after him self, she came in and improved lives for millions and changed the country for the better and stopped a lot of famine and poverty. I'm not even Russian and I know this

5 Elizabeth the I
6 Angela Merkel Angela Dorothea Merkel is a German politician and the Chancellor of Germany since 2005. She is also the leader of the Christian Democratic Union.
7 Rosa Parks Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was an African American civil rights activist, whom the United States Congress called "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement".

Rosa Parks was a demonstrator that finally stood up for the rights that had been denied from her. I am so disapointed that she was ranked so low on this list and she is a lot better than that moron Cleopatra who led the fall of the Egyptian empire

8 Hillary Rodham Clinton

Not really, she's worst than Hitler. Hope I don't get on her and Billy-boy's death list.

Sure will be on of the greats.

Amazing lady
