Ecaterina
Teodoroiu
(1894-1917) is considered a heroine in Romania for her role during World
War I. She fought and died on the battlefield, while leading an infantry
division.

She was responsible for setting up the first Scouts organizations in her
country. Even though she was a battlefield nurse at first, she started fighting,
driven by the deaths of all four of her brothers. Today, she is remembered
through several monuments and names of institutions in Romania.
