Urduha, more commonly known as Princess Urduja, was a 14th century warrior queen of Tawalisi, in what is now known as Pangasinan. Princess Urduha was trained in the art of war since she was a child, and became an expert in using the kampilan and a skilled navigator.

With bodies of strength and muscular physique, they were known as Kinalakihan, or Amazons.
