Legendary Amazons movie

I found a Chinese martial-arts movie on You Tube that depicts a group of Oriental Amazons fighting an army of male barbarians.  The link to Legendary Amazons, which I placed in my Video Library, has the full movie.  It has Chinese, Arabic, and English subtitles with Chinese audio.

The setting is medieval China and takes place outside of a castle which is defended by the women.  The Amazons use swords, spears, arrows, and unique weapons to attack the male horde.  I think that you will enjoy the fighting scenes, as they are some of the finest I've seen of this genre.

Boudica's Sack Of Londinium & Final Charge

I have uploaded a vid clip from a You Tube video from the A & E channel's docudrama, "Queen Boudica".  She was the queen of the Iceni tribe of the British Celts who revolted against the tyranny and taxation of the Roman Empire.  She rallied other tribes and together they nearly wiped out the Romans living in Britannia.

I have placed the clip in the "Video Library" under "Boudica". The clip shows two important and dramatic scenes:  1) her sacking the city of Londinium (London) and 2) her final heroic but futile charge against the Roman Legion sent to destroy her and her tribe.  I do hope that you not only watch this video but also rent the movie from Netflix as it's a fair presentation of her exploits but has a few historical errors.  And, nobody is quite sure how her and her two daughters perished in that final battle.

Queen Boadicea Rallying Her Army

I uploaded a really fine drawing of Queen Boadicea rallying her army of Icenis and allies against the occupying Roman forces.  I like this render of her as it portrays her as a queen and war leader, and not some under dressed armed bimbo.  You can see from the picture that her arm respected her, but notice a couple of doubters.  I have placed the picture near the top of my art gallery.  Hope that you enjoy it and please post your comments here if you want to say something.

If you want to see a good historical movie about her, you may rent it from Netflix as "Warrior Queen".  It's produced by Masterpiece Theater of the BBS and it's a high-quality, mostly historically accurate portrayal of her mistreatment by the Romans and her bloody uprising and defeat.

She is greatly admired by the modern Britons as they have erected a bronze statue of her near London's Westminister Bridge.  It portrays her brandishing a spear in a two-horse chariot with her two daughters at her side.

New Video: Naked Weapon (gladiatrix fights)

Please check out a really good Chinese gladiatrix video clip that I just added to the Video Library.  It's from the movie, "Naked Weapon", and features a number of thrilling and deadly duels by women fighters battling in groups.  The entire movie is available on You Tube if you want to see the whole film.

"Death Of Camilla" painting

I have uploaded a classic painting, "Death Of Camilla", by Maikar Forlag (1927), housed in the Liebig Museum in Frankfort, Germany.  The scene is the Queen Of the Volscians, allies with the Latins against the invading Trojans, from the Aeneid.  She lies dying from a dart in the chest and is attended by her warriors.  Previously, she slew many Trojans with her battleaxe before being ambushed by Aruns, a priest she coveted for his splendid armour. I have placed the painting in my Art Gallery.

Pict Female Warrior Fights Roman Officer

I just uploaded a You Tube clip from the movie "Centurion" that depicts a duel between a Pict female warrior, fighting with a spear, against a captured Roman officer with a sword and armour.  I placed in my Video Library under "Centurion". Hope you like it as female Pict warrior videos are a rarity.

New Videos Added

I added some good female swordfights to the Video Library. "Amazons:  Hell Hath No Fury" is a battle between women warriors and pirates.  Next, a rare find, is "Camilla's Last Charge", a video clip from "The Last Glory Of Troy" depicting Queen Camilla's heroic charge against the Trojan invaders of Italia. "Broadsword Stage Fight" is a rehearsal duel but very realistic. "Burial Of The Rats" has a fantastic saber duel between a small number of women defenders against an army of male invaders. I also added the Brittany Spears Gladiatrix clip from her Pepsi commercial. Please check them out.

Broken Links To Video Clips Fixed

I noticed that some of the links to my video clips in my Video Library had been deleted from You Tube. Luckily, I was able to find replacements for all of them either from You Tube or other video sites. So, please browse my extensive video library for some real Amazon fights.

Moorish Amazons video

Please watch the "Moorish Amazons" video that I placed in my "Video" library.  It's a well-crafted CGI story about how black, women archers in medieval Spain vanquished three Spanish armored knights trying to leave their besieged castle and get help.  The video is from You Tube.

Two More Artworks

I decided to add two more artworks to freshen up the art gallery.  The first, "Close Quarters", by famed drawer of Amazons, Bodak, depicts a fierce battle between two groups of women warriors, featuring a close-up of one fight. 

The second, "Dueling Topless", an 18th century classic, depicts two women fighting with sabers.  According to many accounts, sword and pistol duels were not uncommon among high-born women from the Medieval through the Renaissance periods.  They fought topless, not to be sexy, but to avoid infection from wounds inflicted above the waist.

"Carita", star of "The Viking Queen" movie

For my first upload of the New Year, I've chosen a rare photo of Carita Jarniven, the Finnish actress, who played the star, "Carita", in "The Viking Queen".  You will find this publicity photo in the Art Gallery.  I also have the trailer to this movie in my Video Library.  Carita looked good in armour and handled her sword well in fights with the Roman Army. 

She led her Iceni tribe in a hopeless fight but chose suicide over capture.  "The Viking Queen" doesn't have any Vikings, but lots of heroic Iceni warriors and druids.  Her sisters were also warriors who died fighting bravely.  The movie is not available from Netflix, but you can purchase it from Amazon.com.  It's not an accurate movie but worth watching if you like women warriors.

"Wolfy's Howl" Blog News

I recently switched from cable Net to DSL Net so I lost my access to my previous ISP's FTP server. Therefore, as my photo-stories and short-story libraries were hosted on the FTP server, I had to delete both libraries. I hope that most of you had a chance to read these stories. Sadly, I haven't found a way to put them back on the blog.

*** BIG PROBLEM:

One of my biggest problems with art collecting is authors not signing their work. While I sometimes use unsigned art, I also would like to give the artist credit. So, if anybody thinks they know the artist of any unknown picture here, please leave me a comment on any of my posts. Thanks.

Thanks to everybody for making the blog a success.

Gladiatrix

Gladiatrix
Artist: White Coma

A Gladiatrix Speaks Out:

"[Men tell women it's not ladylike to wield a sword.] Well, ever the man in men! Let a woman know her place: let her milk and spin and sew and bake and bear children, not look upon her threshold or the command of her lord and master! Bah! I spit on you all!

There is no man alive who can face me with weapons and live, and before I die, I'll prove it to the world. Women! Cows! Slaves! Whimpering, cringing serfs, crouching to blows ...

Ha! You deny me a place among men? By God, I'll live as I please and die as God wills, but if I'm not fit to be a man's comrade, at least I'll be no man's mistress."

From: The Encylopedia Of Amazons, by Jessica Amanda Salmanson, p. 4.
