Which Historic Princess Are You?
by Tori Highley

Princesses have always been a favorite career choice for little girls still growing up. The movies and shows that they watch show princesses as strong women doing many awesome things, and even the books they grow up reading talk of fairy tales featuring princesses doing magical things. These stories are beautiful and inspiring, and it is no wonder that so many children want to be princesses. 

But now that you have outgrown fairy tales, can you still imagine yourself as a princess? Real life princesses have harder and fiercer track records than your childhood fairy tales ever imagined. They had real-world problems, and they had real kingdoms to manage.  While modern royalty usually has little to do with running a country, historical princesses had many battles and invasions to deal with. They learned excellent diplomacy skills, and they often directly influenced the outcome of entire wars. 

Knowing this, do you still want the job? Let us pair you with your historical royal counterpart to see what kind of princess you would be. Would your diplomacy bring peace to your land, or would your strategic intelligence successfully defend your people against invasion? Our quiz will tell you which historical princess you are!
