Khutulun Great Female Warrior Of The Mongol Empire

One version of events is that she realized there were rumors that she was having and incestuous affair with her father. Realizing the negative effects these rumors had on her father’s reputation, she chose to marry a man without wrestling him first. Rashad al-Din’s account is that she finally fell in love and married a Mongol ruler in Persia named Ghazan.

In other accounts, she married a prisoner who had failed to assassinate her father. By all accounts, she finally agreed to take a husband but remained undefeated as a wrestler and her athletic dominance was unchallenged.
