Semiramis, Queen of the Universe

FOH ep 33. This time we meet the mother of Adad-Nirari III, whose reknown long after her death outlived even the Assyrian empire itself. If you had asked someone in the 17th Century BC (or at any time before Queen Victoria of England) who was the most powerful female ruler in history they would have answered “Semiramis, Queen of Assyria”

But who was she? And did she really conquer all of India or just parts of it?

Meanwhile, despite the powerful Queen to his south, Ishpuini of Urartu is growing his kingdom even stronger.

We also get to meet Jehoahaz, king of Israel and something happens in … Sparta!
