Xtraordinary Warrior Princess Khutulun- Famous Women (Poem)

Marco Polo said I was a superb warrior

I would ride in enemy ranks

Snatch a captive

Like a hawk snatches a chicken

I helped my father in many battles

Specially against cousin Kublai Khan

Any man who wanted to marry me

Must defeat me in wrestling

Else forfeit 100 horses

Famous Women

I had a herd of 10,000 horses

My father would have named me heir

I was his favourite

He took my advice

My brothers didn’t support his decision

I refused to acknowledge my brothers as heirs

They challenged me

I swear if I lived today

I would have ruled the world.

Here’s another poem in my Famous Women series.
