Queen Kandake

Queen Kandake


hese powerful female rulers were known as Kandakes, leading to some confusion with the Greeks and Romans, who thought they were just all called Candace. (Remember I mentioned Queen Candace? We'll be coming back to her!). Kandake was actually a title meaning “great woman”, used to refer to either the king’s mother, or wife.


As a Kandake, these women were immensely powerful. They could own their own land, conduct their own business, and were basically entirely independent women.
