She Who Must Be Obeyed paperweight


In stock

The phrase 'She Who Must Be Obeyed' comes from Rider Haggard's famous novel, 'She', about a tribe of natives in a lost African Kingdom and its fearsome queen, Ayesha, who reigns as the all-powerful 'She Who Must Be Obeyed'. It re-entered popular consciousness in John Mortimer's novels about Rumpole of the Bailey, the aging barrister referring to his wife Hilda by this not altogether flattering epithet - though never within her earshot.
