Excited About Hulu's The Great? Check Out These 8 Shows With Badass Royal Women
Hulu's The Great isn't the only ridiculously sexy period piece on the block. Following in the footsteps of The Favourite — and sharing a flamboyantly dressed Nicholas Hoult — The Great takes a comedically fictionalized look at Catherine the Great's early life. Elle Fanning portrays the titular empress as she seizes power in a coup from her less-than-worthy husband Emperor Peter III (Hoult), complete with gorgeous gowns and sexy suitors. If The Great has caught your attention, but you're on the lookout for other things to watch, we've got you covered.
Nothing says badass like a woman of history who defies what's expected of her as she takes control of her own life. These eight women, some fictional, left a legacy that history took note of and have been talked about to this day. Get ready to clear your schedule because you're definitely going to want to binge these shows.
