Mists of Palenque:
The Lives of Four Great
Four of the most powerful women in ancient
Americas - women who shaped their people's
destiny. But few have heard of them. Their
stories lay buried under crumbling ruins hidden
in misty tropical jungles for centuries.
Now the saga of the Four Great Maya Queens
of Lakam Ha (modern day Palenque) bursts to

(500-700 CE) the story brings rich detail to the
lives of the grandmother, mother, wife and
daughter-in-law of the most famous ruler in the
Maya world, Janaab Pakal I. In 1952, his royal
tomb was excavated, the richest Maya burial yet
found, comparable to Egypt's King Tut.
