Asked in Iran, Ancient Greece
What was the main conflict between the Persians and Greeks the Greeks had land that the Persians wanted the Persians had land that the Greeks wanted the Greeks believed in freedom and self-gove?
The Persians wanted peace and prosperity in their empire. It included the Greek cities of Asia Minor, who were restive and were stirred up and supported by Greek cities of mainland Greece. The Persians concluded that the only way to get peace was to incorporate the mainland Greek cities in their empire and appoint Greek tyrants to each city to keep them quiet. Some of the cities joined the Persians, the southern city-states resisted, putting aside temporarily their usual fighting between themselves and spent 50 years warding off the Persian Empire. The Persians became tired of this and agreed to stay out of Greece, and left the Greek cities to go back to their usual fighting amongst each other. Athens kept hold of the Greek cities which had supported them in the defence against the Persian Empire and converted them into an empire of its own.
Asked in Persian Wars
What were the main reasons why Athens became the most powerful Greek city-state in the aftermath of the Persian Wars Please be sure to discuss at least two reasons for the rise of Athens?
It had led the Delian League of Greek city-states to keep the Persians away from the cities of Asia Minor. When the Persians agreed to stay away, Athens then turned the cities into an empire of its own, continuing to levy the annual fees for the now non-existent war effort. It used this money to maintain a strong fleet, which both gave the muscle to force the cities to pay up, and also interfere in the rest of the Greek cities around the Aegean Sea.
Asked in Alexander the Great, Ancient Greece
How many cities did Alexander the Great name?
Alexander the Great founded many cities. According to the biographer and philosopher Plutarch, Alexander the Great founded at least 70 cities. More than likely this included pre-existing cities that were either renamed and/or repopulated by Alexander. The known cities that were directly founded by Alexander are at least twenty.
Asked in Greece, History, Persian Empire
Why did the Persians keep attacking Greece?
The Greek cities of Asia Minor were part of the Persian Empire. They revolted and this brought mainland Greek city-states into the conflict. The Persians decided that the only way to bring peace was to bring all these cities under control. The wars went on for 50 years until the Persians gave up and the Greek cities went back to their usual warfare amongst each other.

What was significant about a unified Greek army fighting the Persians?
Asked in Ancient Wars
Why the Battle of salamis start?
Persia was attempting to bring Greece within its empire to bring peace to the Aegean Sea area. The southern Greek city-states resisted and were invaded. The Greek strategy was to first defeat the Persian navy which threatened the Greek cities and so forced them to keep their armies at home, and allowed the Persians to pick off the cities one at a time. So the Greek navy assembled at Salamis, where the Persians thought they had them cornered in the strait. However the Greek plan was to get the Persian fleet strung out entering the strait and defeat them while dispersed. It worked.
