Another Kohain of note - Kahina Dariya bint Tabita ibn-Tifan

QUEEN KAHINA DARIYA When the Arabs began the conquest of what is today Tunisia,Algeria and Morocco, they were opposed by Jews and Berbers who had lived together for hundreds of years. At the time, the most powerful tribe among the Berbers was the judaised Kahina tribe of the Auresmountains. In 693, the largest Arab army ever assembled, under the command of Hassan, began the conquest. Kahina and Berber fighters led by their Jewish priestess-queen, Kahina Dariya bint Tabita ibn-Tifan, routed Hassan near Tebessa and stopped the Arab conquest for five years. -- Ainsztein, p. 23.
