Himiko was the first ruler of the kingdom Yamatai in Japan to be called a queen. She was probably chosen as the head of the country at the end of a 70 to 80 year war in order to restore peace. The queen lived withdrawn from the public in a residence protected by guard towers. She was protected by 100 soldiers, and cared for by 1000 female servants. She never married. The only male exception in her court was her brother, who supported her as a spokesman to the people. After her death she was supposedly buried in a large grave together with 100 soldiers.
