Once upon a time there was a kingdom ruled only by women. It was a center of learning and culture unequaled anywhere in the world. So rich and prosperous was Talshamar that it was coveted by all rulers, but especially by the envious kings of England and France, its nearest neighbors.
Zealous scholars of later centuries virtiually erased all traces of the existence of Talshamar from their historical accounts because they did not believe such a land could have existed.....Did Talshamar really exist?
