Mausoleum at Halicarnassus Event 8/27 - 9/10
Quickly build and expand your city during the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus event! The fifth of our Seven Wonders resource boost events that will continue throughout Summer for the Ages!
By the fourth century BCE, the most distant satraps of the Persian Empire ruled semi-autonomous kingdoms. One such state was Caria in what is now southwestern Turkey. Having moved his capital from the inland town of Mylasa to the venerable coastal city of Halicarnassus, King Mausolus of Caria established control over the surrounding region. He was determined to use the wealth of his prosperous new territories to leave a lasting legacy behind him.
Thus, the king commissioned a magnificent marble tomb. Its foundation was a solid stone block. Above this was a colonnade whose four sides were each adorned with statues created by a famous sculptor. At the top was a pyramidal roof crowned with a four-horse stone chariot, presumably ridden by Mausolos himself.
The Carian king died in 353 BCE with the tomb still unfinished. It was completed by his successor, sister, and wife Artemisia a few years later. Like the Pharos, the Mausoleum was so impressive that its name became the general word for any grand funerary building. The structure survived the Middle Ages but was likely in a state of disrepair when the Knights of St. John plundered it for materials in 1494 and 1522. Fortunately, they did save a few statues, some of which are now on display in the British Museum.
