Ana Mendoza also known as the Princess of Eboli was a born and natural rebel. She was born in 1540. As a young teen she lost her right eye in a fencing accident...though some say a dishonourable duel.

She eventually married and had 10 children.

After her husband dies she did try her hand at being a nun...for a while.
