About this product
- DescriptionThe story of the most famous woman in Spain's colonial history in Mexico is given fresh treatment in this fictionalised biography that composes a potential narrative from the disputed accounts of Maria de Estrada's life. Maria was the grandchild of a rabbi and physician and who trained with Gypsies in swordplay and horsemanship. After escaping a death sentence imposed by the Spanish Inquisition, Maria arrived in the New World where she became a warrior fighting alongside Cortes in Spain's military conquest. Once she settled in the area, however, she saw reasons to defend Mexico's indigeus population.
