The Tain has many great heroes and warriors, and none more compelling than the Woman King of Connaught, Medb. Warrior, mother, lover, and above all, ruler, Medb brooked no compromise and went to any lengths to assert her status.

Indomitable, ferocious, and determined to prove herself at all costs, we’re getting to know this woman on her own terms this November.
