For the first time in 34 years, famous dinner theatre Medieval Times has crowned a queen. About time! Queen Dona Maria Isabella is the sole ruler in the brand new show, Sovereign, which is being implemented throughout all nine locations across the continent.
Isabella is an exciting and much-needed step toward gender equality, as she is the first-ever female leading role at Medieval Times.
"Where previously our female characters played in more supportive roles, we are now showing a woman fully in charge, a woman whose authority is sometimes challenged, but she quickly rises to the occasion as a strong leader, squelching opposition," Vice President Jon Speier said.
Unsure as to what took the dinner theatre this long but everyone is still glad that a queen is now reigning. Now people can have a heaping scoop of female empowerment and gender equality, alongside their roasted chicken, corn, and sword fights.
That’s horrible. I’ve known many more women who fence & ride than men.— Trai-All (@trai_all) January 15, 2018

“Dona Maria Isabella is the sole ruler of the land, she is a strong but kind ruler and even though her authority can sometimes be questioned, she quickly asserts herself as the respected ruler she is,” one of the actresses who portrays the queen said about her new iconic role.
