Fierce Girls - Atia of the Julii, Matriarch, Rome’s resident HBIC, general BAMF.
(This is based of Rome’s (HBO) Atia, rather than her real life equivilant, due to the fact she was a little vanilla in real life.)
Atia is a fierce bitch. Seriously. Mother of Octavian, the first Roman Emperor and Octavia, a woman who adopted her dead husband’s (Mark Antony) children with another woman (Cleopatra) after their suicide. Her children had steel and it definitely came from their mother’s side. Lover of Mark Antony, in what was the romance that would have taken over the world if history hadn’t got in the way. Brutal to her enemies and a deadly opponment to have, her entire arc is wonderfully summed up in her last appearance in the series, as directed to her bitchy daughter-in-law:
You are swearing now that some day you will destroy me. Remember: far better women than you have sworn to do the same. Go and look for them now.
