>Italia und Germania (Italy and Germany) is an allegorical painting of the painter Friedrich Overbeck, finished in 1828. The painting shows two women inclining to each other, symbolizing the friendship between the two countries or cultures they represent: Italia and Germania.

Interesting idea for a thread. Pic related is Cleopatra and Queen Himiko IIRC.
>>
>>2893593
Checked and it's actually Cleo and Murasaki Shikibu, author of Genji Monogatari.

Since there's nowhere else to really ask, am I alone in getting a weird lesbian energy from this story, or are my goggles on too tight?

What was the name of that medieval (?) woman who pretended to be a man and married another woman, and judges kept the marriage valid even after she was exposed?
>>
>>2895954

Not medieval, but there's indeed a case of two women where one of them impersonated a man for them to get married, and like you said, even after the Catholic Church found out, it wasn't annulled or anything as far as I know:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_same-sex_marriage_in_Spain
>>
>>2895960
Not sure if medieval but it was certainly several centuries ago. She was a warrior who lived most of her life as a man, and she gets mentioned here every once in a while.

>it wasn't annulled or anything as far as I know:
Don't read anything into this. An annulment is only an official recognition by the Church that a marriage is invalid, the annulment itself is not what makes the marriage invalid. It would have been self-evident to any Catholic at the time that no real marriage had taken place, so there would have been no reason to go through an annulment process. Like, imagine if someone today tricked a blind priest into marrying a man and his dog or something. It would be absurd for the Church to officially annul that.
>>
>>2894349
That's an amazing story regardless. And she made all her female friends swoon over her. Got a tear in my eyes at the end of that. Thank you for this.

It's French, by an 18th century artist called François Boucher. He seems to have liked painting Artemis' harem.

"friend" used to actually mean "girlfriend" until the XIX century.

The artist is Simeon Solomon; an English painter who was noted for his depictions of Jewish life and same-sex desire.
Left is Sappho of Lesbos and to the right is Erinna. Both poets from ancient greece.
Sappho is in modern day a symbol for love and desire between women with the words "sapphic" and "lesbian" derived from her name and home island.
>>
>>2906793
Looks like Sappho'd much rather be with one of her teen girls.
>>
>>2906793
That reminded me of of a short manga "Sing, Erinna!" which has subtext but is mostly disappointing.

So that’s what Pratchett based Monstrous Regiment on.

Thanks anon, that's just what I was looking for

There have been lots of women through history who dressed as men to join the army.
>>
>>2907472
Yeah, but it sounds like it was really rampant in this particular place and time, if that Wikipedia article is to be believed, and the Great Northern War also seems like a rough match for the tone and setting of Monstrous Regiment. I mean, I could be wrong, but reading the bit about the wider context of that story really reminded me of the book.

Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women, was pretty fuckin' gay:

>In an interview with the writer Louise Chandler Moulton, [Alcott] later commented with pre-Freudian candor on her own feelings: ‘I am more than half-persuaded that I am a man’s soul, put by some freak of nature into a woman’s body … because I have fallen in love in my life with so many pretty girls and never once the least bit with any man.’

She ended up giving Jo, the protagonist of Little Women, kind of a weird marriage choice at the end because she was annoyed at all the fans writing in asking for her to please get married, when she didn't think it was necessary for a happy ending at all.

Also Little Women would end up influencing a certain female Japanese writer named Nobuko Yoshiya, the first proto-yuri author.
