Queen Christina of Sweden was an ambitious ruler with radical ideas and a love of academia and the arts. She was very likely bisexual, if not a lesbian (though we’ll never know for sure) and hated the idea of marriage. She’s remembered as the most educated woman of the 17th century and it showed in her various endeavors across Europe, first as Queen of Sweden and later as a guest of the Vatican in Rome. She was a woman ahead of her time, at times a good witch and others a bad bitch – either way, we heart her.
