WHO is SHE?

Whoever guesses correctly can then make an attempt to outsmart everyone else. One a woman is correctly identified, I will post a short bio of her and her accomplishments in an additional thread - if the person who submitted her would rather do this themselves, just let me know.

Here is my first attempt:



She was a talented mathematician in her own right but only those with a particular interest in her would know anything about her other than the identity of her husband. WHO is SHE?

I'll post another for the time-being.



She may not look like much, but she was Queen of what is now one of the wealthiest and most powerful nations in her particular region of the world.

Hey! Isn't Amina of Zaria supposed to be a Nigerian Queen of the 16th c.?

This is very misleading it looks like a photograph.

Okay, this is going to be an easy one:
 
Name the Persian woman, worldy reknowned for her beauty, that became Alexander the Great's favorite wife upon his conquest of the Iranian Plateau.
 
note: Sometimes she is labeled as having been an Indian princess, at other times, a Persian one.
