She takes the ring road, wrongly (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

theodora

Here is my best explanation:

'she' is the definition.

'the ring road wrongly' is the subsidiary indication.

'ring' becomes 'o'.

'wrongly' indicates anagramming the letters.

'road' anagrammed gives 'dora'.

'the'+'o'+'dora'='theodora'

'takes' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for theodora that I've seen before include "Lady", "gift from God", "Byzantine empress" and "Oratorio by Handel".)
