Herodotus on Nitocris (Ntikrty)
Herodotus claimed that Queen Nitocris (Ntikrty) sought vengeance for the murder of her brother, the king. She constructed a banqueting hall with an inbuilt water inlet, and arranged for those she held responsible to be lured there by a great feast and then drowned. To escape the vengeance of her enemies, she threw her self into a room of embers (sounds like a bad way to go).
