SheFinds Travel Week: Biographies for Holiday Travel

Whether for business, pleasure, or holiday reunions, this month means travel. Instead of listening to the guy behind you convincing his girlfriend to join the mile high club, why not get lost in another era with history’s most fascinating women? Icons of style, education, and intelligence, each of these women is a worthy seatmate on any journey.

If you’re headed to boardroom battles, be inspired by Agrippina’s political savvy, which landed her a spot as Empress and the only woman in Rome to have the honorific Augusta. (Rome eventually demonized her; contemporary accounts paint a lifestyle that would make Paris Hilton blush.)

Eleanor of Aquitaine survived a forced marriage, war with the Pope, two kings, and the Crusades. You can survive four days at the homestead.

And if you’re looking for something lovely to get you through a long plane flight, step inside Marie Antoinette’s wardrobe with an illustrated history that will have you enthralled from takeoff to landing.
