Queen of Sheba, or Queen Balqis, as she is famous in the Arab World, was very influential, wealthy and famous during her rein, some 3000 years ago.

She was so wise that several peoples, mainly Ethiopians, claim that she is the founder of the dynasty that ruled Ethiopia and was overthrown only some 30 years ago.
