For ancient Greeks #Semiramis ( #Greek: Σεμίραμις, #Armenian: #Շամիրամ Shamiram) was the legendary queen of king #Ninus, succeeding him to the throne of #Assyria.The legends narrated by Diodorus Siculus, Justin and others from Ctesias of Cnidus describe her and her relationship to King Ninus, himself a mythical king of Assyria, not attested in the Assyrian King List.The name of Semiramis came to be applied to various monuments in Western Asia and Asia Minor, the origin of which was forgotten or unknown. Nearly every stupendous work of antiquity by the Euphrates or in Iran seems to have ultimately been ascribed to her, even the Behistun Inscription of Darius.Herodotus ascribes to her the artificial banks that confined the Euphrates and knows her name as borne by a gate of Babylon. However, Diodorus stresses that the Hanging Gardens of #Babylon were built long after Semiramis had reigned and not in her time.Various places in Assyria and throughout #Mesopotamia as a whole, Media, #Persia, the Levant, Asia Minor, #Arabia and the #Caucasus bore the name of Semiramis, but slightly changed, even in the Middle Ages, and an old name of the city of #Van was Shamiramagerd (in Armenian it means created by Semiramis).A real and historical #Shammuramat (the Akkadian and #Aramaic form of the name) was the Assyrian queen of Shamshi-Adad V (ruled 824 BC–811 BC), king of Assyria and ruler of the Neo Assyrian Empire, and its regent for four years until her son Adad-nirari III came of age.The indigenous Assyrians of #Iraq, north east #Syria, south east #Turkey and north west Iran still name female children Semiramis.
