Isabel of Conches, wife of Ralph of Tosny, rode armed like a knight during a conflict in northern France during the late 11th century.

Orderic Vitalis described Isabel of Conches, daughter of Simon I de Montfort, as brave as "several Amazons and the legendary Camilla, who fought as ally of the Italian king Turnus in the Aeneid."
