Deborah

 

in the Old Testament, Deborah was a Hebrew prophetess and judge who united the tribes of Israel and led their conquest of Palestine. Biblical annals indicate that the story of Deborah apparently is based on the historical fact of the battle of the united army of the tribes of Israel with the army of the kings of Canaan. To this battle is dedicated the triumphant Song of Deborah, the most ancient extant example of Hebrew epic poetry.

under her aegis, Barak routed the Canaanites. [O.T.: Judges 4:4–10]
