She was related to Genghis Khan, had eleven sons, and was known as a ruthless and brilliant politician who pushed her children into rule of the Mongol Empire. Among the Tartars, this lady was more powerful than anyone. She is portrayed in many sources as one of the great figures of the 13th century. European missionaries visiting the Mongols in the middle of the 13th Century remarked that she was the most renowned of the Mongols. Who is she?

She is Sorghaghtani Beki. 
 Just out of curiousity, why among the Tartars and not the Kazakh or Mongols? as she was a Kazakh herself?

Well done, Cok Qec! Sorghaghtani Beki was a Kerait (a Turkic origin tribe). Her uncle was Ong Khan, ruler over the Keraits.   She was the daughter-in-law of Genghis Khan a/k/a Chinggis Khan (married to his youngest son Tolui). She was a Nestorian Christian, although she patronized Buddhism and Taoism to gain approval of her Chinese subjects. She had eleven children, four of whom went on to become Great Khans. She was very savvy and politically influential in setting in place the accession of the future rulers of the Mongolian Empire. She got the powerful nobles to side with her and against the regent, Khanum Oghul, by pointing out that future khans should be the direct descendants of Chingiss Khan, therefore, making her eldest son, Mongke, the victor.   

There is much unanimity among historians and observers of the 13th century that she was praised by many. A European missionary named John of Plan Caprini (on a visit to Mongolia) wrote that this woman [Beki] was highly honored among the Tartars, the only exception was the emperors mother. She was praised by a Hebrew physician named Bar Hebraeus (of the Middle East) as a queen who trained her sons so well that all princes were amazed by her administrative skills.   Rashid al-Din (Persian historian) wrote that she was extremely talented and able and that she was elevated over all other women in the world.

Had it not been for the political involvement and manipulation achieved by this woman, descendents of Tolui might not have been able to replace Ogodeis line as the main Mongolian royal line in East Asia.

She received her Honorary Doctorate from Montana State University (USA) and her professional background is in accounting and community development. She is the great granddaughter of one of the legendary Native American Indian leaders of the West. She is admired by many for her work on the project to reform the U.S. Governments management of Indian trust assets and was one of the lead organizers of the first national bank located on an Indian reservation and owned by a Native American tribe. Who is she?

This is from the Indian Trust website:
 
"Ms. Cobell is a recipient of the 1997 "Genius Grant" from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation's Fellowship Program. In 2005 she received a "Cultural Freedom Fellowship" from the Lannan Foundation, an award that cited her persistence in bringing to light the government's "more than a century of government malfeasance and dishonesty" with the Indian Trust. In 2007 she was one of ten people given the AARP Impact Award (for making the world a better place) and in 2004 The National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development presented her with the Jay Silverheels Achievement Award."
