FIRST FEMALE ADMINISTER: ARTEMISIA

Famous for her beauty and courage, Artemisia, BC. 546 He is the ruler of Halicarnassus, which was dominated by the Persians. Her husband died not long ago, and since her son was still very young, she took over the kingdom herself. The Persian navy tries to explain that the army will be defeated in the Salamis Sea Battle with the Greeks, so attacking is a futile effort. However, the majority decided to join the war and Artemisia started to fight with five warships attached to it.

Artemisia joined the war as the first female admiral in history. From the first moments of the war, the superiority of the Greeks began. The outnumbered Persian fleet attacked, but the Greeks were faster. Artemisia fearlessly charged her fleet onto the battlefield, but soon realized that if she continued her attack, not a single man would survive. "Follow me and do what I do," she said to her men when the ships had her entire fleet pinned down. Then he suddenly turned the steering wheel and put him on the ship of Kalydnos, which was passing by and under the command of King Damasithymos, at great speed from the middle of it. The ship sank into the waters without even realizing what was inside. No one was saved.

Seeing this incident and the sinking of the ship, the Athenians thought of him as a friend and stopped watching Artemisia's ship. The Persians, who saw the event from afar; Thinking that the sinking ship was a supporter of Athens and that Artemisia had sunk her with great courage, they began to talk about the bravery of the woman. In fact, King Xerxes, who watched the war, could not slow down and said, "Today, women fought like men, and men fought like women." said.

The Persians and their supporters were defeated in the Salamis naval battle, one of the first major naval battles in history, which lasted approximately twelve hours, but the star of the war was the female admiral Artemisia I. There is no consensus on whether Artemisa sank her fellow Kalydnos ship accidentally or deliberately. Herodotus says that "Artemisia's luck is that not a single sailor survived the sinking ship".

Despite everything, Artemisia took her ships back to Halicarnassus without any casualties and without a single man's nose bleeding. After all, she is the first female admiral and she has made her place in history as a fearless, valiant woman. Although the Athenians placed an award of ten thousand drachmas on Artemisia's head, no one received this award.
