Only Aristocrat Female or a Woman


Explanation:
Such difference in genders is not carried over to English, so you have to use either 'female' or 'woman' to denote it, depending on styly or your preference. As a recommendation, you might omit female, or woman, if the context has been described by you before, and the reader is comfortable with it, understanding that it is her not him.

(female) aristocrat


Explanation:
If the context makes it necessary to emphasize that this is her, you can add the adjective "female". Otherwise, I personally would omit it.
