Why "Die beide Frauen sind schoen" is wrong? Why use "beide" instead of "beiden"?

It is preceded by a definite article - "Die" - making it weak inflection. Nominative, plural, weak inflection ending is -en.

Thanks for the link. Somehow no one's ever explained that there's different classes of inflection to me before.I feel like less of a dolt now, if a bit overwhelmed at the complexity.
