Once they were free

 When Saudi Arabia was created, it absorbed many states under its wing, such as the territory of Ha'el. That vast area of land was never a country, just like the Levant was never supposed to be divided into 4 countries.
This woman, Princess Fatima, ruled the region of Ha'el from 1911 to 1914 and successfully defeated the Saudi invasion of her country.
100 years ago, this woman was able to rule a country and lead an army, while now, women in Saudi Arabia can't even drive a car or travel without a male guardian permission!
