Phear my leet google skillz!
You wanted to know whether there has ever been a female
Chrestomanci, and the answer is no, not yet, not in that world.
It is a much more old fashioned world than ours and Chrestomanci
is a government appointment. No government in that world would
give the post to a woman. Pure prejudice, because I am sure there
are female nine-lifed enchanters too. However there must come a
day when a female is the only enchanter available - nine-lifed
enchanters are very rare - and then the government would be forced
to appoint her.
