In the last part of our fascinating discussion of Amazon history with Dr. Walter Penrose, we shift our attention to the Indian concept of "Stri Rajya" or "The Kingdom of Women." The Ancient Indians located this kingdom to the west of them (somewhere towards the Eurasian Steppe and Caspian Sea), right in the neighborhood where Amazons were noted by the Greeks and others. We also explore the stories of Hellenistic warrior queens and their connection to the warlike women in their region.
