14. Maria Licciardi
Here’s another female drug lord, but this time she’s Italian. Maria Licciardi was the leader of the Camorra crime syndicate between 1991 and 2003 and dealt primarily with heroin. In a violent dispute between rival gangs, Licciardi was responsible for the killings of 100 people in Naples!
She made it among Italy’s most wanted criminals in 1999 and went into hiding soon after. After a laborious search mission by the police, she was finally arrested in 2001.
