#Zenobia, the Rebel Queen Who Took On Rome: This ancient #Syrian queen of #Palmyra conquered Egypt, captured Roman provinces, and nearly transformed her realm into an empire equal to #Rome. (Her real name was Septimia Bat-Zabbai, hellenized as Zenobia.) . . ...The showdown had been decades in the making. By the middle of the third century A.D. the Roman Empire was mired in political and economic crisis, its frontiers under constant attack, and its center struggling to hold. The catastrophic defeat and capture in 260 of Emperor #Valerian by the #Persians thrust Roman rule into even greater disarray. In Europe the rebel #Gallic empire started to break away from Rome. Weakened and distracted, the empire was facing threats on all fronts. Observing from the east, Zenobia saw her opportunity and knew that she had an empire to gain... . .

#Boudica was a #Celtic queen who led a revolt against #Roman rule in ancient #Britain in A.D. 60 or 61. As all of the existing information about her comes from Roman scholars, particularly #Tacitus and #CassiusDio, little is known about her early life; it’s believed she was born into an elite family in Camulodunum around A.D. 30. At 18, Boudica married Prasutagas, king of the Iceni tribe of modern-day East Anglia. When the Romans conquered southern #England in A.D. 43, most Celtic tribes were forced to submit, but the Romans let Prasutagas continue in power as a forced ally of the Empire. When he died without a male heir in A.D. 60, the Romans annexed his kingdom and confiscated his family’s land and property. As a further humiliation, they publicly flogged Boudica and raped her two daughters. #Boudicca promised vengeance after this violation: “Nothing is safe from Roman pride and arrogance. They will deface the sacred and will deflower our virgins. Win the battle or perish, that is what I, a woman, will do.” Like other ancient Celtic women, Boudica had trained as a warrior. With the Roman governor Gaius Suetonius Paulinus leading a military campaign in Wales, Boudica led a rebellion of the Iceni and members of other tribes resentful of Roman rule. After defeating the Roman Ninth Legion, the queen’s forces destroyed Camulodunum, then the capital of Roman Britain, and massacred its inhabitants. They went on to give similar treatment to #London and Verulamium. By that time, Suetonius had returned from Wales and marshaled his army to confront the rebels. In the clash that followed, the Romans managed to defeat the Britons despite inferior numbers, and Boudica and her daughters apparently killed themselves by taking poison in order to avoid capture. In all, Tacitus claimed, Boudica’s forces had massacred some 70,000 Romans and pro-Roman #Britons. Though her rebellion failed, and the Romans would continue to control Britain until A.D. 410, Boudica is celebrated today as a national heroine and an embodiment of the struggle for justice and independence. #WomensHistoryMonth #AncientHistory
Incredible vivid images of life in #Ottoman #Jerusalem, 1900-1918. Muslims, Christians, and Jews. Before the British #Mandate. Before the World Wars. Before the #Holocaust. Before the #UNPartition. Before the State or #Israel. Before #Nakba. Before the many wars and attacks. Before #Occupation. Before #Intifada. Before the rockets fired at Israel. Before the repeated destructions of Gaza and the illegal #settlements in the West Bank. Before the separation wall.

The Seljuk Empire (Persian: آل سلجوق‎, translit. Āl-e Saljuq, lit. 'House of Saljuq') or Great Seljuq Empire, was a medieval Turko-Persian Sunni Muslim empire, originating from the Qiniq branch of Oghuz Turks. The Seljuk Empire controlled a vast area stretching from the Hindu Kush to western Anatolia and the Levant, and from Central Asia to the Persian Gulf. The Seljuk empire was founded by Tughril Beg (1016–1063) in 1037. From their homelands near the Aral Sea, the Seljuks advanced first into Khorasan and then into mainland Persia, before eventually conquering eastern Anatolia. Here the Seljuks won the battle of Manzikert in 1071 and conquered most of Anatolia from the Byzantine Empire, which became one of the reasons for the first crusade (1095-1099). From c. 1150-1250, the Seljuk empire declined, and was invaded by the Mongols around 1260. The Mongols divided Anatolia into emirates. Eventually one of these, the Ottoman, would conquer the rest.
