King Darius I. When he was trying to punish Greece for not bowing to his will, he decided to invade. He was finally defeated at the Battle of Marathon.
The Battle of Marathon, August/September 490 BC, gave Greece a victory over Persia.
The name marathon comes from the Battle of Marathon. It was fought between Persia and Athens at Marathon, Greece. After the Greeks defeated the Persians, they sent a runner back to Athens to inform the Greeks of their victory. The distance between Marathon and Athens was around 25 to 26 kilometers. He burst into the assembly hall exclaiming Νενικήκαμεν (We have won!) then collapsed and died from exhaustion. This is just a legend.

Persia had a king, not an emperor. The Persian king Darius I was at home in Persia when the battle of Marathon took place, so he was not killed at Marathon. Darius the Great died of natural causes 14 years after Marathon.
