Zenobia the Warrior Queen

Zenobia's gallery

Zenobia was known to be very beautiful much like her claimed ancestress, Cleopatra. She was said to have long dark black hair, beautiful dark eyes, as well as perfect skin. Zenobia would ride out to battle, in the lead, and fight alongside her fellow warriors. Many artists have captured her beauty and strength.
