    “Vasilisa” means “queen”, so must be she was the Queen of Genderfluidity? (-ness? I don’t know.)

    I don’t know if anyone else is having trouble logging in with Patreon? I sign in as usual and click Allow, but then it won’t let me look at the concept art and stuff. Quite possibly just me, but figured I’d ask.

    I was thinking of Greek, where it has two S’s. Wiki also mentions it, but it’s with one S. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasilisa_(name)]

    http://www.behindthename.com/name/vasilisa – Russian feminine form of Basil.

    Basil: “From the Greek name Βασιλειος (Basileios) which was derived from βασιλευς (basileus) meaning “king”. Saint
    Basil the Great was a 4th-century bishop of Caesarea and one of the
    fathers of the early Christian church. Due to him, the name (in various
    spellings) has come into general use in the Christian world, being
    especially popular among Eastern Christians. It was also borne by two
    Byzantine emperors.”

    I’m sorry i know this is weird but would you consider doing an article on the Nanny of the Maroons one of Jamaica’s national heroes.She escaped with her brother when they arrived in jamaica so they were never slaves for long additionally some historians think that her expert military skills she used ti help win of the maroon war was because before her capture she was an african princes.
    Also great article as usual
