Tomb Reveals Peruvian Queens Who Ruled Over A Brutal Culture

Was the Ancient World all flower power?

Maybe the sacrificial victims were crowned with flower garlands before they met a bloody end.

People assume that Matriarchal authority is a peaceful affair.

Yet the Ancient Queens of Peru beg to differ.

  1. I agree that the assumptions on the sole basis of a woman as a ruler does not mean that she will be benevolent or just. I believe history has produced enough immoral queens to teach feminist historians who prefer to view matriarchy through rose-coloured glasses. At the same time, we are discussing a culture that existed well into the Rajasic era, so of course the culture would reflect the vikhelic (martial) principles of this era.
