I know she has things written about her but I would love to know more about Cassandra from Troy, to never be listened to but to know the truth must be the worst thing in the world!

I live in the USA and sent you an email any way just so my two choices were mentioned.
Boudicca or Boudica depending on your spelling and Hua Mulan.
