Olga of Kiev, or Saint Olga, was a totally kick ass woman who, according to the Chronicles, went on a killing rampage after her husband was killed. She killed two sets of people sent to try and convince her to marry another man (of the people who killed her husband), got a bunch of people drunk and set them on fire in their own building, then smashed the city with military might and when they asked for mercy only asked for pigeons and an arrow from every family. She then set the arrows on fire, attached fire to the pigeons and sent them back into the city setting the entire place ablaze.
This was all before she converted to Christianity, but she was so badass how can you not like her?
