The Maenads

The Maenads were fearsome female followers of the Greek god Dionysus and were greatly feared in Greek mythology due to their drunken madness that saw them violently tear apart wild animals, children and even full-grown men with their barehands.

They have become so associated with madness that the name "Maenad" can be used to describe any violent, often insane, woman.
