Queen Shushanik

by Nino from Tbilisi

My hero is probably the strongest woman in Georgia’s history, Queen Shushanik. She suffered and struggled in the jail, where her husband used to beat her. And the reason why she endured so much suffering was Queen Shushanik’s love of God. She sacrificed her youth and beauty to prove her love and belief to God. I don’t think I could have ever done the same thing, that is why I think she is my hero. The second reason why she is my hero is that she was educated and with refined manners.
