Dux Femina Facti


This Latin phrase comes from Virgil’s epic poem, the Aeneid. It refers to Dido, the legendary founder and first queen of the Phoenician city-state of Carthage. Over the centuries, “DUX FEMINA FACTI” came to be a motto associated with female leadership. There are a variety of ways it has been translated: – “A woman was the leader of the deed” – “A woman was the author of the exploit” – “A woman led the enterprise” – or simply, “A woman led”. All of them carry the same basic message: a woman got it done. The pendant is made from gold or silver colored steel, and has the phrase engraved on one side. Gold colored steel on an 18″ gold plated chain.
