My Favourite Female Character

Vesuvia Adelia Rachel Ortese Aguilar is a medieval pathologist from the University of Salerno, Italy, in Ariana Franklin’s The Mistress Of The Art Of Death. Better known as Adelia Aguilar, she is strong-minded, decisive and excellent at her work. Living in a time – twelfth century – when women doctors, especially those who did post-mortem analysis were burnt at the stake as witches, she strives hard to do her work, without having to compromise. Sent to investigate the murders of four children in King Henry IVth’s England, she excels in a man’s world. And boy does she do it well! She exudes a magnificent presence by which most of the male characters of the novel and the series are silhouette in the background.

Her characteristics are faintly feministic and mostly liberal.
