Caria was the capital city of Halicarnassus, an ancient metropolis that was both a part of Ancient Greece, and Persia. It was ruled over by Artemisia and her husband, Mausolus. They were not only co-regents, but passionately in love. When Mausolus died, Artemisia was so heart broken that she constructed a “mausoleum” in his honor - the most architecturally audacious and awe-inspiring tomb of all time. The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus became one of the seven wonders of the world, according to the original writer of that list, Antipater of Sidon.
