Historic Girls

by E. S. Brooks

These biographical sketches of famous girls from history originally appeared in St. Nicholas magazine. The subjects are all characters who even in their youth showed signs of great promise, and the stories focus more on the achievements of their youth than later feats. The subjects of these stories include Zenobia of Palmyra, Helena of Britain, Clotilda of Burgundy, Teresa of Avila, Christiana of Sweden, and many others.
