The Amazonian Guards

The Amazonian Guards were Muammar Gaddafi’s female bodyguards. They were named after the Dahomey Amazons, a Fon all-female military regiment of the Kingdom of Dahomey (present-day Benin). They were also known as the Revolutionary Nuns and Green Nuns.

“Women should be trained for combat, so they do not become easy prey for their enemies.” -Muammar Gaddafi
