dc.description.abstractStudies on leadership in Southeast Asia's early modern era have tended to centre necessarily on men, and in particular, on O.W. Wolters' concept of 'men of prowess'. The concept of female leadership is still little researched. This case study of Sultanah Safiatuddin Syah of Aceh (1641-75) provides some insights into female leadership in the Malay-Muslim island world of Southeast Asia. Contrary to the received view that successful leadership tended to be male (men of prowess), this article demonstrates that female leadership and the justification for the position of the ruler relied less on notions of sacral and charismatic power based on male prowess, but instead shifted to Muslim notions of piety and the just ruler. © 2013 The National University of Singapore.
