Named for Mausolus, King of Caria, whose wife, Artemisia, is history's most remarkable example of a surviving relative who did not go cheap on the grave monument! The splendid tomb was one of the Seven Wonders of the World, inspiring many imitators, but fell, after long last, to the ravages of Crusaders seeking stone for a fortress and pillagers working for the British Museum.
