In the last period, I approached less touched, unknown and sometimes controversial topics, namely: female heroism. In this work I wanted to mention a page from the ancient history of the Romanian nation: The girl from Cozia.
Also nicknamed "Joan of Arc" of Wallachia, Alexandrina from Cozia was a fearsome fighter during the time of Vlad Tepes, even reaching the rank of army captain. Her parents dying in a battle, she was saved by Laiota Basarab's men and taken to a Cozia Monastery. She learned to wield the sword and the prayer, reaching to fulfill her destiny in a brilliant way...
A suggestive scene in his life was when, saving the life of Vlad Ţepes on the battlefield, he wanted to repay her. She was forced to reveal her identity and, while taking off her helmet, her locks flooded her shoulders, to everyone's amazement.
In the battle she was undefeated and many of the enemies were plotting to kill her. After the death of Vlad Ţepes, she was also taken prisoner and killed, gored by two donkeys, according to some legends.
