The Blood Throne of Caria by Roy Casagranda

At a time when saying a woman's name in public in Athens is taboo, Princess Artemisia dreams of replacing her father as the King of Halikarnassos. But horses do not gallop on clouds. As the kings of Caria plot and scheme to use her for their own ends, Artemisia cunningly outmaneuvers them in the palace and on the field of battle. She surmounts the ramparts of patriarchy to unify a divided nation and become one of history's most unforgettable heroines.
