Sovereign Women in a Muslim Kingdom: The Sultanahs of Aceh, 1641-1699
Sher Banu AL Khan
In the middle of the 17th century, Aceh, the leading Malay kingdom of the time, had a succession of female rulers which does not quite fit in with the predominant patriarchal history of Malay sultanates. In this ground breaking book, the author, relying on contemporary indigenous and European sources, explains how this came about, the effect of sultanah rule and the sultanahs' legacy. 318 pages.
