Amanirenas by Tadarida Amanirenas by Tadarida
Amanirena was a warrior queen of the Kingdom of Kush. She reigned from 40 BC to 10 BC and started a war against Romans (who took over Egypt after Cleopatra's death) that resulted in a peace reaty on good terms.

Not much is known about her appearance other than that she was curvy and had only one eye. I have no idead what Kushians wore, so I drew her in an Egyptian dress, because this is how she was dressed in one picture I saw of her.

I found this image via Google search. I was very much hoping you would give me permission to use in in my Women Warriors Pinterest collection: www.pinterest.com/amazonchroni…

I will, of course, put the details of the creator (you) with the write-up.

Anxiously awaiting your response,
Brad Foubister

I'm not sure anyone knows how they dressed in Kush. I believe there to be some question over where it is.(Could be thinking of a different area)

I tought that's Amanishakheto who was the kandake of Kush when and after Cleopatra's kingdom, but because of you, now I know that's Amanirenas was the queen who attaks the romans after the fall of Cleopatra!

I always really admired this queen, even believing that his name was that of her successor. She was one of the great women warriors in history! Is such a pity that so little is known about her!

I was wondering if you would give me permission to use this picture. I'm planning on creating a short internet video on her and another African queen. My email is djed@centerformaat.com. Thanks in advance. Jabari

I think she should be darker-skinned, as the Kushites were thought to be a "burnt" (i.e. really black) people by the Greeks, but otherwise this is very good!
