Fierce Females of History


Seondeok of Silla: Supernatural Korean Queen

Season 3, Ep. 38

How would you feel if you lived a nice life but then historians hundreds of years later questioned whether you even existed? 

You’d be dead, but we imagine you’d still be fairly pissed off. 

That’s what happened to Queen Seondeok of Silla’s sister. Luckily for Seondeok, she did more than enough to have her name etched in the annals of Korean history. 

In this episode you’ll learn about how Seondeok led a cultural revolution through Silla, set hearts ablaze - literally, used frogs to sniff out enemy armies and generally just did the most during her time on earth. 

She’s a lot, and we love her for it. 

Seondeok of Silla, we’re coming for you.
