The African warrior queen Nzinga called herself “King” and led her armies with a sword around her neck (swordlace!). She also regularly devastated Portuguese colonizers with her impeccable ability to throw shade and kept a harem of men (get it Nzinga). She was an absolute force—and it’s high time that more people know her story. Join us as we track Nzinga’s tumultuous reign, explain why she’s the OG Black Widow, and insult Nzinga’s tool of a brother at every chance we get. This podcast is brought to you by Factinate.com.

Castile’s “Mad Queen” Joanna was whip-smart, exquisitely beautiful, and, as her nickname would suggest, hopelessly insane. Juana la Loca white-knuckled her way through a deranged childhood, then nabbed a hot hubby—only to realize that her new beau was the Worst Husband Ever (we wish we were exaggerating—this guy sucked BIG TIME). So, when Joanna’s evil spouse kicked the bucket, you’d think everything got better for our girl. Instead, that’s when she earned her infamous nickname.

When it comes to rebellious queens, it's hard to beat Catherine the Great. This woman chucked her own himbo husband off the Russian throne, entertained an unending parade of hunky lovers, and might just hold this season's record for most batshit court scandals.  In this episode, we get to know the one, the only Catherine the Great. Was she, as people said, "a warmonger with an unnatural sexual appetite"? Why did she hate her own kid so much? And, most importantly, did she really die of...well, if you know, you know?  This podcast is brought to you by Factinate.com.

Mary Queen of Scots is like if a period drama cross bred with a Fast and Furious movie. The action JUST. DOESN’T. STOP. This girl’s life was wall to wall drama, with special appearances from: Treacherous cousins! Toxic hunks! Suspiciously convenient deaths! Blue pee! And so much more. Honestly, trying to summarize her gong show life in this episode description is impossible, so suffice it to say that Mary was a messy betch who loved drama—and paid the ultimate price...

Troublemaker, heartbreaker, undertaker, rule-breaker: no matter how you slice it, Queen Christina was one of history's greatest rebels. It’s truly a shame that more people don’t know the story of Sweden’s amazing (and super hot) “Girl King” because trust us when we say that you don’t want to sleep on Christina.  She began her reign when she was just a kid—but then, after romancing hot ballerinas and going hard on those textbooks like a veritable Renaissance Hermione, she abruptly peaced out of palace life. With freedom in hand, she went from grumpy nerd to bisexual party girl and eventually hit her apex as a gender-bending, freedom-defending, counter-culture icon. TL;DR: WE LOVE CHRISTINA.

Seductress. Schemer. Poisoner. These words—and far worse—have been used to describe Anne Boleyn. But did she deserve them? In the second episode of our season on queens, we dive into the dramatic life of Anne Boleyn, the woman who was so stupid-hot that the King of England invented a brand-new religion just to get some action. PS: fair warning, we hate Henry so be prepared for us to drag him for 99% of this ep. Sorry not sorry!  This podcast is brought to you by Factinate.com.

Wu Zetian was the only Empress of China but instead of getting celebrated, she's gone down in history as an evil megalomaniac. Did Wu really kill a baby? Seduce her lover's son? Execute people in straight-up deranged ways? Or is there more to this story? In the very first (!) episode of Yesterday's News, Dancy and Veronica discuss the complicated legacy of Wu Zetian. Spoiler alert: There's waaaaay more to this lady than a bad reputation.  This podcast is brought to you by Factinate.com.
