military - were there any high-ranking female soldiers during the middle ages?


i strongly doubt that any medieval person was knighted if they were believed or known to be female. however, many high ranking females commanded armies or led the defense of cities and castles. and no doubt many women fought in the sense of shooting arrows or whacking enemies with axes and swords or stabbing them with spears or swords.here are examples of the three types of female military leaders and warriors.gwenllian ferch gruffydd (c. 1100-1136) was the wife of gruffydd ap rhys, prince of deheubarth. in 1136 her husband traveled to gwynedd to convince her father king gruffydd ap cynan to help him fight the normans. normans invaded deheubarth while gruffydd was away, and gwenllian led an army to fight them. she was defeated near kidwelly castle. her son morgan (c. 1116-1136) was killed

graduate admissions - how much does a student's ranking in their cohort matter f


i am from one of the top uk institutions studying mathematics. i am under the impression that uk universities tend to have a larger cohort (~150 per year) than us but perhaps i am wrong.i would like to know is there any difference ranking 1st, ranking in top 5 or ranking in top 10 when it comes to phd applications especially in the us, or is the personal ranking only serves the purpose as a benchmark (say top 5% is enough).i have heard different theories about this as some would say it's extremely important to get top first or second to get into top graduate programs, and some say that having one or two marks higher than your course mates makes no difference and tells nothing more about your ability.thanks for advance.

are women's voices one octave higher than men's voices?


well, if you compare the ranges of male and female voice types you will see that the female types are one octave higher than the male types. this means that the highest female voice is in general one octave higher than the highest male voice, and the same for the lowest. in classical music this might be a good generalization, because composers often try to explore the singer's range. so the soprano voice can be really one octave higher than the tenor voice, for example. in popular music i don't believe it's true. you hardly see women singing above f5 or g5, while tenors, like bruno mars for example, easily reach a4 or c5. at the same time, you can find women (not only contraltos) singing around f3 and g3, but i can't think of any popular song these days where a male singer reaches one ...
