The courtesan was one of the most accomplished women of her time. She was well-read, well-educated, and well-mannered at a time when most women could do no more than read a Psaltary and bear children.
 
These women were dinner companions, entertainers, singers, poets, and lovers to some of the most prominent men of the period. They were trained in many arts, only one being the art of love. They held parties, and made more than one lord envious of the current patron. A courtesan was an attainable dream. She exhumed charm, lust, and opulence. Men came to her to experience the fantasy of love and knowledge their wives could not supply them with. They presented her with gifts, and she, in turn, would consider their proposals. They held power when women were allowed none.

Here are some of the more famous Courtesans in history.
