One of the seven “wonders of the world:” so called from Mauso’lus, King of Caria, to whom Artemis’ia (his wife) erected at Halicarnassos a splendid sëpulchral monument B.C. 353. Parts of this sepulchre are now in the British Museum.   1
   The chief mausoleums, besides the one referred to above, are: the mausoleum of Augustus; that of Ha’drian, now called the castle of St. An’gelo, at Rome; that erected in France to Henry II, by Catherine de Medicis; that of St. Peter the Martyr in the church of St. Eustatius, by G. Balduccio in the fourteenth century; and that erected to the memory of Louis XVI.   2
