I just stumbled across this awesome blog, Rejected Princesses. A former DreamWorks animator introduces us to heroines whose stories Disney would never put on film, for one reason or another.

One recent post tells of Ching Shih, who commanded 70,000 pirates.

Ching Shih (17751844) was a prominent pirate in middle Qing China, who terrorized the China Sea in the early 19th century. She commanded over 300 junks manned by 20,000 to 40,000 pirates.[2] Another estimate has Cheng's fleet at 1,800 and crew at about 80,000[3][4] men, women, and even children. She challenged the empires of the time, such as the British, Portuguese and the Qing dynasty. Undefeated, she would become one of China and Asia's strongest pirates, and one of world history's most powerful pirates. She was also one of the few pirate captains to retire from piracy.
