The Nabataean Kingdom stretched from its capital Petra in what is now Jordan deep into the Arabian Peninsula. It grew wealthy from trading in incense from southern Arabia to the Mediterranean. Incense was used in religious rituals and burials and was vitally important for many cultures, including the Romans. The Nabataeans had a powerful kingdom from 168 B.C. until the Roman Empire annexed it in 106 A.D
2000 years ago Zenobia a women Ruled Syria and lead a revolution against the roman empire, 2000 years later women in Saudi Arabia not allowed to drive a car, more funny is that there is nothing in Islam to prevent them from this
