Queen Seondeok of Silla

It's not easy to find English language information about Seondeok online. She ruled Silla from 632 to 647, inheriting the throne from her father because he had no sons. She was renowned for her sharp intelligence, which she certainly needed because her reign saw rebellions and war with Baekje. Seondeok sent scholars to China and presided over the building of Buddhist temples. This site suggests why women were able to rule in Silla at that time.
