Number 1: Princess Noor Inayat Kahn

I think the Indian Princess Noor Inayat Kahn is the greatest female spy in history. She was more than just a princess, she was an elite spy and the first radio operator to aid the french resistance. She never revealed any covert information to the gestapo who brutally interrogated her. She always remained trustworthy and would die with honor. The only way to stop her was to kill her, eventually she was tortured and killed, but died with the honor of never betraying her country.
