This reprint set of 1963 Stamps of Queen #Zenobia (زنوبيا), Empress of #Palmyra (ملكة تدمر) is a potent symbol of rebellion, tolerance and independence.

While many legends exist of her, what is known is that she became Queen-regent of her son Vaballathus (وهب اللات) after the assassination of her husband and founder of the Palmyrene Empire (مملكة تدمر), King Odaenathus (أذينة).

She held de facto power and by 271 AD she brought much of the Roman east, central Anatolia and Upper Egypt under her control. She seceded from Rome in 272 AD, naming her son emperor and was eventually defeated by Roman Emperor Aurelian (الإمبراطور أوريليان) two years later. She was subsequently banished to Rome and died in 274.

During her time, she led a multiethnic and multicultural empire through tolerance and fostered culture and the pursuit of intellect. Today, she is remembered as a powerful and fierce Syrian woman who challenged Roman domination and is a source of national pride.

This is a hi-res, enlarged stamp set reprint - not the actual stamp set, framed and printed on thick matte paper.
