Melisende d'Outremer
Nice and concise book with well written chapters on a number of well known female rulers. Nice short bibliography at the end of the book for further reading.

The chapters are not bogged down with too many unnecessary details - each story is well written and concise, outlining the main / important events in each woman's life. And each story is objectively written.
