Walladah Al-Mustakfi

born 1001

Known as an 11th century poet, Walladah was born into a powerful family.  Her father was Caliph of Cordova during the time of 1023 and 1131, and historians have recorded that her mother was an Ethiopian Christian slave.   In the midst of a rebellion, her father was poisoned and her family lost control of the government.  When she became 30, Walladah inherited a great deal of wealth and was able to live on her own.  She opened a salon for writers and became a favorite of the reknown Arab poet, Ibn Zaydun.  They had a long and stormy relationship, during which she became known for her own verse and liberated ways which raised the status of women.  

I am fit for high positions, by
God
And am going my way with pride

was a verse found on her clothing. 

Forsooth, I allow my lover to
touch my cheek,
And bestow my kiss on him who
craves it.

by Jane Harter
