Artemisia Halicarnassus the Grand Admiral of the Persian Imperial Navy
Artemisia the Persian Warrior Queen: Artemisia was a Greek Iranian Citizen of the Persian Empire, a Local Queen, a military genius and a Persian Patriot.

Grand Admiral Artemis (Achaemnid Dynasty Era), Commander in Chief of the Persian Navy. You can see the spirit of Cyrus in the sky at the background of the painting. Artemisia is one of my all times favorite Iranian Military commanders. Artemisia was not just another Iranian Military Commander, yet she is a living legend and a role model for Persian Women.

Prologue

My word is particularly with you, The Persian Woman,

Young generation of Iran, future generation of Iran, energetic young ladies of Iran and opinionated Persian girls, please listen and safe keep this advice in your minds and in your hearts:

Lifesaving Advice

We have enough Iranian “Career Exilists” and “Islamic Apologists” abroad; we also have enough Iranian “Half-Sleep Inxilists” and “Arab Worshipers” inside Iran, so do not become one!

Enough being a:

Career Exilist = Making a career out of being in Exile
Islamic Apologist = Apologizing for Islam and sugar coating it to look good
Half-Sleep Inxilist = Silent Majority sleep now for decades exiled inside their own country Iran
Arab Worshiper = Iranian Muslim

Start being a:

True Persian to your own culture, tradition, philosophy, race, language and lifestyle; wake up the Beast of “Persianhood” and remain Persian for eternity!

The Purpose

The purpose of this article is specifically for the Persian youth and then the Persians in general, to know their valuable historical Persian Women. The youth shall be aware of their rich and glorious history. Women in Ancient Persian Empire were valuable beings; they often had important positions in the Courthouse, Cabinet Ministries, Military, State Department, Financial Institutions and other official administrations. Later on, during the First Arabo-Islamic Invasion-Occupation (651 AD), some of the Persian Women gathered Commando and Guerrilla armies, and some associated with their fellow men, combining the resistance forces against the foreign oppressors.

Those brave Persian Women with cooperation of their brave male partners, had managed to free Iran from the "First Arabo-Islamic Invasion-Occupation" (651 AD). The sacrifices of Iranian men and women, under the leadership of Yaqub Leis Saffarid, the son of a simple coppersmith, had freed Iran on 873 AD and ended the 222 years of Arabo-Islamic occupation (651 AD - 873 AD) of Iran. Now we are once again under the occupation. Do you have what it takes to end the "Second Arabo-Islamic Invasion-Occupation" (1979 AD) of Iran?!

It is essential for the Persian Women to know and understand their glorious history of the past, because without it, they will not be able to plant their place in the future of Iran. Young Iranian ladies shall understand that they were not born as second class citizens, yet this is an Islamic present to the Iranian women! Islam had made an abomination out of our proud Persian women!

This article is also for the history buffs and other viewers to observe and compare/comparison the value of the Persian women in the past and the present insult and oppression of the Islamic Regime towards them.

Yesterday and Today

Imagine at a certain era, women in Iran were wisely running the country, yet at the present, they practically count as properties of men! Legally they count as half of men in all legal documents; then physically they should be wrapped in bondage of hejab and chador, so the men will not be sexually aroused (ultimate Islamic male chauvinism)! Technically, according to Quran, women were originally created from a rib bone of the man! Women cannot attend certain important positions such as judicial, military, etc., for the reason that they are not completely alert at all times; monthly period, makes them too emotional to make important decisions! Muslim men justify this, due to the reason that women go through the monthly cycle, and PMS; therefore, they are physically dirty (Najes) and mentally impaired (Naqes ol Aql) during the period! During this period, they cannot and are not emotionally qualified to run sensitive positions in the government, religion, judicial, military, politics and etc.


Persian Glory of the Past: Persian Maiden stares at the ruins of Persepolis …
Persia Will Rise Again!

Islamic Scholars have gone as far as calling women "Naqes ol Aql" (Mentally Retarded)! Islam clearly states that women are second rate citizens! They must be manhandled, owned, protected, well covered; safe kept and if not obedient, then must be beaten by the firm hands of the Muslim men!

Women of Iran, once upon a time, you were Ruling Monarchs, Queens, Prime Ministers, Secretaries of State, Military Generals, Navy Admirals, and Empresses of the land; yet now you are petty slaves, properties, and sub-humans wrapped in bondage of hejab, looking like crows, eggplants or penguins (take your pick)! Isn't it time to wake up? The day will come for the women of Iran to set things right, and that will be the day that the Mullahs shall be afraid of the sweet revenge ....

Persian Women, you were not born incarcerated behind the Chador and Lachak (Islamic Scarf)! The day will come for you to burn the chador and lachak; therefore, you can regain your status as Persian Women. Look at what you were and what you are! This is your wake up call!

Interesting Note about the History of this Piece

When I fist wrote and published the first edition of this research paper (years ago), it had exploded as an atomic bomb on the Internet. It was new, refreshing and controversial. No one ever discussed it on Internet before! Many loved it, many were shocked, Muslims criticized it, apologists apologized for it, IRI rejected it but everyone got educated by it!

Various Iranians as usual (like the rest of my books and articles) stole it, copy pasted it, added some flawed information to it and published it as their own work, without naming the source (IPC) or even giving credit to the author (Ahreeman X); yet that is no surprise from the lovely Iranian thieves of my works! The bottom line is that thanks to my paper, many got informed and educated to their own culture and history; furthermore, Persian young ladies got introduced and informed about their rich heritage and history. That is the best reward for me.

In the future, I shall write vastly about each of these Persian women but for now, the below research is enlightening.

Here are the results of my research, hope you enjoy.

For the historical timelines, please review:

Famous Historical Persian Women

Name of the Women (meaning of the name in parenthesis) [Date lived]
Name of the related Monarch or Historical Character (Date of reign)
Who the woman was

Zarathustra Spitmata’s Family

1. Doqdu (selected) [7 BC]
Zarathustra Spitmata (630 BC - 550 BC)
Mother of Zartosht Spantman (Zarathustra Spitmata), the Great Persian Philosopher and Poet

Zarathustra Spitmata’s Timeline

I believe Zarathustra Spitmata's Birth-date is on Farvardin 6th, - 71 Shahanshahi = March 26th, 630 BC. and, Zarathustra Spitmata's timeline is 630 BC - 550 BC. He was born on this glorious day. Why you ask? Because after studying all the historical testimonials, analysis of historical facts, study of archeological discoveries, latest scientific debates, I chose to have a progressive approach and view history as a science; therefore, I shall state that this is the most logical conclusion based on the latest evidence.

Zarathustra could have not been born way back in 1000 BC or before, simply because back then Iranians had Mitraism and Vedaism Religious beliefs. Beside some mythical documents such as Shahnameh, there is no solid evidence that there was a trace of Zoroastrian Beliefs back then!

Even early Medians had no clue of Zoroastrianism! Median Kingdom (728 BC - 550 BC), only started to grasp Zoroastrian values in later years of the Kingdom. Eventually the Achaemenid Court after 559 BC (Coronation of Cyrus), started to fully grasp the concept of Zoroastrianism.

There is a difference between actual historical evidence and myths of Shahnameh or Hierarchy of various Zoroastrian Temples! Mubeds, Zoroastrian Temples and Shahnameh are not evidence of true history! I deal with science and I view history as a science.

If you surf around Iranian Websites, you will see that many Webmasters mistakenly assume that the lady in this portrait is Esther! This is a grave error! Esther eventually became Xerxes' wife and Shahbanu of Iran; however, Xerxes' original love was Artemis. This is a factual based portrait of Artemis with Xerxes. I should know, because I was the person who published the original version of this portrait on Internet (Old IPC Website). Later on, various Iranian webmasters and graphic designers, touched up my original version and named the lady Esther!

Darius III (336 BC - 330 BC)

Roxanna Persian Princess, Daughter of Darius III - Realistic Representation of Roxanna
Real Roxanna
Here is another grave mistake and historical sabotage by the Hollywood Liberal Director "Oliver Stone"! In his "Alexander Movie", Stone portrayed Roxanna as a Black Woman, savage slave girl of Alexander and a minor Achaemenid Princess! In Stone's movie, Rosario Dawson played the role of Roxanna! Now I have no idea what kind of garbage Oliver Stone intended to release and upon what historical information he made his Hollywood Spoof; however, if Stone and I are talking about the same Roxanna, then Roxanna Achaemnid was neither black nor a minor princess! Roxanna Achaemenid was daughter of Darius III, Shahanshah of The Persian Empire! This is a factual based portrait of my Roxanna and the historically accurate Roxanna. Would you please tell me if she looks black or savage to you?!

I do not know who Oliver Stone’s Roxana is, if she is Roxanna Achaemenid or another Roxanna from Bactria (Bakhtar) but Roxanna Achaemenid or Persian Princesses did not exactly look like what he portrayed (Rosario Dawson) in the movie! Maybe Oliver Stone’s Roxanna was a Bactrian Princess and not Darius III’s daughter but still the character did not fit!

Fake Roxanna
Oliver Stone's: Rosario Dawson Roxanna
Here is Oliver Stone's portrayal of Roxanna: Black Skin, Savage, Knife Dancing Girl, Animal-like, Minor Irrelevant Princess and Alexander's Sex Slave Girl! Not that there are anything wrong with Wild, Black, Savage, Sex Slave Girls or Rosario Dawson! I actually get turned on by all the above; however, this is not the historically accurate portrayal of the Persian Princess. Furthermore, it was a degrading portrayal of Roxanna! Oliver Stone's Roxanna looks like a Tribal Gypsy Black Iranian female from the South Iran Persian Gulf shores Provinces and Islands such as Hormozgan province and Qeshm Island! Doesn't she?


Roxanna Persian Princess played by Rosario Dawson
Now honestly, doesn’t this Roxanna look like Black Iranians of Bandar Abbas from the southern shores of Iran at the Persian Gulf or Straight of Hormoz?
It does not matter if Oliver Stone intended to portray Darius the III’s daughter Roxanna or the Bactrian Princess Roxanna because neither one of them were black, savage, primitive and dressed up in Bandari outfits! Anyway you hack it, Oliver Stone’s portrayal of either Roxannas is wrong and twisted, set aside that his complete movie Alexander 2004 is historically inaccurate and belongs in the dumpster of history (refer to my 2 part review of the Alexander movie 2004).


Roxanna the Persian Princess portrayal by Oliver Stone in the Alexander Movie 2004
Oliver Stone, Hollywood Directors and scriptwriters in general are historically illiterate and ignorant of the accurate historical events, costumes and sceneries. This is the reason for the majority of the Hollywood historical movies being historically inaccurate, flawed and comical to the historians, history buffs or any person who has any knowledge of the history!
The question is:
Who is this girl?
Roxanna the Achaemenid Princess?
Roxanna the Bactrian Princess?
Roxanna the Bandari Girl from a village near Bandar Abbas?
You be the judge!

Persian Princess Tamina (Tahmineh is the correct Persian term) played by Gemma Arterton in the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Movie 2010 – A Video Game based Fictional Movie
Look at the similarities between Roxanna the Persian Princess played by Rosario Dawson in the Alexander Movie 2004’s dress and head gear (above), and the Tamina Persian Princess dress and the head gear here! Have in mind that Roxanna was a Pre-Islamic Iran Princess and Tamina is a Post-Islamic Iran Princess. They lived a few centuries apart; however, you can still see the resemblance between their dresses, head gears and garbs. These two Persian outfits and costumes are pretty much the same, but how can that be when they are from two different time periods, a number of centuries apart?
Because Hollywood has no clue about the true history!
Because Hollywood is ignorant to the true and accurate historical events, costumes and environments.

16. Youtab (unique) [4 BC]
