     Artemisia, queen of Caria, ally of Xerxes, naval commander & advisor 
Artemisia was a Queen of Halicarnassus, who outfitted a navy and joined Xerxes on his invasion of Greece as a general. She was one of his most valued and trusted advisors. She alone among his advisors recommended postponing a naval conflict with the Greek on the eave of the battle of Salamis, which of course, turned out to be a disaster for Persia.” (x)
