Helen the Warrioress

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

I decided recently to do a story on the many faces of Helen of Troy/Sparta.  This would have been when she was still a spartan princess.  In sparta, allw omen were trained to run, jump, etc.  All of the sports stuff, however, it is generally accepted that they didn't learn to fight.  Some evidence I dug up recently suggests that some would have learned, and that many of the royal women would have learned at least basic self-defense.  So here is my Helen the Warrioress.  And yess, I know that warrioress is technically not a word, however, in the fantasy community it is now commonly accepted, and thus I use it, since it sounds so much better than "female warrior, or "woman warrior"  besides, its a sorceress, isn't it?
