You must be looking for a charter sailing yacht holiday in Turkey, or for a charter sailing yacht holiday in Greece. Or you may be researching the Queen of Karia. Who was she? Was she one of three crowned queens of Karia who have come down to us in history? Was she Artemisia, the fifth century daughter of Lygdamus, a Karian, and of a woman from Kriti? Or was she the fourth century's Artemisia the Younger, sister, wife, and widow of Mausolus? Or was she perhaps the third crowned queen of Karia of whom we have knowledge? Ada, younger sister of Mausolus living in exile when Alexander arrived in 334 BC, enthroned by that beneficent conqueror? Or could she be yet another queen of Karia? Come charter sailing in Turkey aboard Queen of Karia II and discover the answer. Come charter sailing the coast of Turkey's ancient Karia, and of neighboring Ionia, and of neighboring Lykia. Come charter sailing the Aegean islands of Greece, islands ruled for more than a thousand years by Karians from Asia Minor. Come charter sailing aboard Queen of Karia II and see Turkey and Greece in luxurious comfort. Another queen of Karia about whom we have an historical record was Aspasia the uncrowned Queen of Athens. Born in Miletus on the border between Karia and Ionia in about 470 BC and descended of Greek and Persian as well as Karian stock, Aspasia may have been the most liberated woman of her time. She was certainly one of the well educated. In her youth she benefited from the teachings of Milesian philosophers such as Thales, of Milesian physicists such as Anaximenes, of Milesian geographers such as Anaximander and Hecataeus, and most of all from an extraordinarily liberal environment created by her mother and father. In her teens she left home and in her early twenties she migrated from Miletus to Athens where she soon took up with Pericles, the "first citizen of Athens," according to Thucydides. She was a friend to Socrates, Aristophanes, and Alcibiades among other of the Athenian intellectual elite. It is also said she was more than a friend to some, that she was a courtesan, and that for a time she maintained a home in Athens for un-tethered women. But it is also said that in spite of her unconventional behavior she attracted the cream of Athenian society simply to hear her declaim. A queen and an intellect for all time. Are you still curious about the name, Queen of Karia? Come discover the source. Come have a charter yacht holiday sailing Turkey or Greece. Or come have a charter holiday sailing both Turkey and Greece! Queen of Karia II offers a charter sailing holiday along the coast of Karia and among neighboring islands of Greece. Why not begin your holiday in Bodrum (Halikarnassus), homeport of Queen of Karia II as well as seat of the queens of Karia. Sail from there to Kos and from Kos to Nisiros and Kalymnos. Then sail further along the coast of Turkey to Miletus, or to Gocek on the border between Karia and Lykia. Do all of this aboard a handsome ketch-rigged charter yacht with luxurious accommodations for five couples and a service to match. Do all of this while you holiday at the crossroads of history.
