    Kurmanjan Datka (1811-1907)

    Kurmanjan Datka also known as the "The Tsaritsa of Alai" or "The Queen of the South", was a stateswoman in Kyrgyzstan, known for her initial resistance to the annexation of that region by Russia. Kurmanjan was born into a nomadic family of the Mongush clan in the Alai Mountains. At the age of 18 she was supposed to be married to a man whom she did not see until her wedding day. When she met him, she did not like him and broke with tradition — first fleeing into neighboring China and later deciding to stay with her father, Mambatbai.
