Flag of Halikarnassos Halikarnassos is a local power in the region of Asia and was an ancient Greek city in Caria. The city was famous for the Mausoleum of Halikarnassos, also known simply as the Tomb of Mausolus, whose name provided the origin of the word "mausoleum". The mausoleum, built from 353 to 350 BCE, ranked as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The city currently lies under the protection of the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom after passing from the control of the Flag of Achaemenid Empire Achaemenid Empire to the Flag of Argead Empire Argead Empire.

Background[edit | edit source]

The founding of Halikarnassos was as a Dorian colony, with Flag of Troizen Troizen and Flag of Argos Argos as its mother cities. As such, Halicarnassus was a member of the Doric Hexapolis, which included Flag of Kos Kos, Flag of Knidos Knidos, Lindos, Kameiros and Ialysus, the latter three later founded Flag of Rhodes Rhodes; but it was expelled from the league when one of its citizens, Agasicles, took home the prize tripod which he had won in the Triopian games, instead of dedicating it, according to custom, to the god Triopian Apollo. Following this, Halikarnassos fell under the suzerainty of Flag of Caria Caria, which eventually became a satrap of the Flag of Achaemenid Empire Achaemenid Empire. In 334 BCE, Alexander 'The Great' Argead of Flag of Macedon Macedon besieged the city, an event that left Halikarnassos in ruins, never to recover.

Reunite Alexander's Empire

For too long parasites and scavengers have made a feast of the Great Empire that Alexander spent a lifetime building. It is time we do away with all claimants, usurpers and delusional provincial strongmen. There can be only one authority within the empire of Alexander the Great, one upholder of the great Hellenistic legacy that this great man founded.

That one power could not possibly come from any dynasty but our own. Only a family that respects the Argead traditions can legitimately claim its legacy.
