Latin translation: Vincit qui se vincit

by Bella
(Ohio, United States)

Vincit qui se vincit... I know that this translates to he conquers who conquers himself. What would be the feminine equivalent of this?

Thank you!

Dear Bella,

Only one word changes to make this Latin phrase feminine: qui must be changed to quae.

Vincit can mean either he or she conquers, and se is the third person reflexive pronoun for all genders, singular and plural.

So: Vincit quae se vincit.

Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher!
