commandress-ns

COMMA’NDRESS. n.s. [from commander] A woman vested
with supreme authority.
To prescribe the order of doing in all things is a peculiar
prerogative, which wisdom hath, as queen or sovereign com-
mandress, over all other virtues. Hooker, b v., sect. 8.
Be you commandress therefore, princess, queen
Of all our forces, be thy word a law. Fairfax. b. ii.
