Halicarnassus was a Graeco- Carian city that belonged to the empire of the Persian Achaemenids. The Persian authorities liked their cities to be ruled by one man, and not by an uncontrollable oligarchy or democracy, and preferred Lygdamis as king of Halicarnassus. When he died, he was succeeded by his daughter Artemisiawho is best known to us from the Histories by the Greek researcher Herodotusalso a Halicarnassian. When the army of Xerxes advanced to Europe, the queen of Halicarnassus and the king of Calynda had a quarrel, about which we do not know much.
She was in supreme command of the forces supplied by Halicarnassus, Cos, Nisyrus, and Calydna 7. She had rendered exceptional services already in the battles of Euboea Herodotus, 8.
When Greek and Persian ships faced each other near Salamis, Artemisia advised Mardonius and through him Xerxes not to risk a naval battle Herodotus, 8. Respecting her most of his allies, Xerxes was pleased with her wise advice Herodotus, 8. She is said to have accomplished great deeds in this battle Pausanias, 3.
It was presumably in a later stage of the battle, in the general confusion of the Persian fleet, that she succeeded in escaping from an Athenian ship pursuing her ship Herodotus, 8. After the disaster of the Persian fleet near Salamis, when Mardonius in Phaleron advised the Great King to retreat, Xerxes consulted Artemisia again, who alone had given him the right advice before that battle Herodotus, 8.
She confirmed him in his resolve to retreat to Asia, where alone he would be secure 8. Plutarch, De Herodoti malignitate About her fate in the following years nothing is known.
Herodotus who perhaps was distantly related to her portrayed Artemisia with great sympathy, and it is not without grounds that Plutarch reproached him with admitting more space to the stories about her than to the general account of the battle De Herodoti malignitate Nevertheless Artemisia was a resolute, courageous, and heroic woman with great presence of mind and pragmatism, and one of the wisest advisers to Xerxes Herodotus, 7.
