* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gertrude_Bell Gertrude Bell]] (1868 1926), was a RealLife AdventureArchaeologist who served as a spy and diplomat in the Middle East during World War I, was a mentor to the famous LawrenceOfArabia, and played a major role in reshaping the Middle East after the fall of the Ottoman Empire following the war. She founded the Iraqi Archaeological Museum ([[WhyWeCantHaveNiceThings which was sadly extensively looted during the 2003 invasion]]) and is still remembered with fondness among the people of the region, no small accomplishment for both a foreigner and a woman.

The LadyOfWar crossed with the GentlemanAdventurer. She doesn't just find excitement -- she specifically seeks it out. She thinks nothing of beating up {{pirates}} off the coast of [[UsefulNotes/UnitedArabEmirates the Trucial States]] or outwitting remnant tribes of {{Mayincatec}} [[ImAHumanitarian humanitarians]].

Most often, she will have no powers of her own to speak of (though she may have some small degree of [[ActionGirl physical prowess]]), but will surround herself with a [[TrueCompanions band of friends]] that will help her on her travails. Will almost certainly live to become a CoolOldLady.

* In Geoph Essex's ''Jackrabbit Messiah'', old [[CoolOldLady Maggie Calloway]] is obviously a Lady Adventurer from an earlier time, with her AdventurerOutfit and unsubtle similarity to classic fiery KatharineHepburn characters.

Added DiffLines:

* After the events of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', Lady [[note]]an honorary title given Yuna for her service to the people of Spira[[/note]] Yuna donned a skirt and twin pistols to hunt artifacts with a RagtagBunchOfMisfits. Unlike most examples of the trope, Yuna had a rather repressed childhood, so she's more making up for lost time than pursuing a lifelong career.

Added DiffLines:

* Marguerite Krux in ''Series/SirArthurConanDoylesTheLostWorld''. Although she has a shadier past than is usual for this trope, she still manages to pull off the typical attitudes and mannerisms.

* Nalia De'Arnise in ''[[VideoGame/BaldursGate Baldur's Gate II]]'' is actually a noble, but has decided to [[NoblesWhoDoSomething actually do something]] instead of just sitting around at her families castle. Though she's not exactly very good at that before she joins the players group.
