Persian Empire

At different times, under different ruling families, there were several different Persian Empires. Usually, the term refers to the Achaemenid dynasty empire founded by Cyrus the Great (559BC - 530BC) which was eventually conquered by Alexander the Great. To rule such a large empire, new groundbreaking systems were set up which influenced all who came after.

What happened at Thermopylae?

Answer 1

Thermopylae , Greece is where the famous 'Battle of Thermopylae' took place where a small contingent/coalition (Notably the Spartans , Thebans , Phocians , Arcadians , et.al.) of Greek Hoplites (armoured infantry) led by the Spartan king Leonidas blocked , there was a small constriction at the pass of Thermopylae , a larger invading force of Persians under the command of Xerxes I . At sea , the Athenian Admiral Themistocles won a naval battle over the Persians thus preventing them from circumventing the pass by landing infantry behind the Greeks by way of an amphibious landing . The Greeks withstood Persian assaults for three days until the Persians utilized a mountain path to outflank the Greeks . The Persians destroyed the Greek blocking force and went on to burn the city of Athens .

{Note: The Greeks lost the sea battle - see Answer 3}

Answer 2

The Greeks were defending against the invading Persian army. Due to their low numbers (roughly 7,000), the Greeks strategically positioned themselves in a narrow passage way. In response, the Persians sent 15,000 elite units. Many argue that there were hundreds of thousand, perhaps even millions of Persians, involved in the battle. There argument, however, is based solely on the writings of Greek historians (especially Herodotus) who weren't even around during the battle. To sum up the battle, the Persians began an assault from afar, using arrow folleys, knowing that the greeks would not move out of position from the fear of being overpowered by numbers. After a few days of arrows and a few light charges from thePersians, the Persians found a route around the Greek position, which they could use to charged them from front and behind. Upon this news, the Spartans covered the Greek retreat, sacrificing their lives for the rest (this is where the 300 comes from) The Persians won the battle and further expanded into the Balkans.

This all happened circa 480 BC

Answer 3

The Greeks assembled a small force of about 7,000 to hold the pass and stationed their combined navy in the nearby strait of Artemesion. Their plan was to precipitate a naval battle by blocking the pass. They needed to defeat the Persian fleet to remove its amphibious threat to the southern Greek cities, which kept their armies defensively at home, and so could not concentrate against the Persian army which could therefore pick off the cities one by one.

A naval battle ensued which the Persians won.

There being no further need to hold the pass, the Greek forces holding it withdrew. The Spartan and Thespian contingents continued to hold the pass to allow the withdrawing Greek allies to get to the protection of friendly city walls to avoid being ridden down when the Persian cavalry broke loose. They went down to a man, heroically saving their allies.

How did the Athenian empire develop after its victory over Persia?

The victory over Persia in 480-479 was achieved by a southern Greek alliance - there was no Athenian empire.

Sparta proposed that Greeks located within the Persian empire, who had caused the problem in the first place, be repatriated back to mainland Greece. Athens proposed that an alliance of the cites sustain a fleet which could guarantee protection of the Greek cities within the Persian empire. This was implemented (the Spartan plan was adopted over 2,000 years later in 1923 CE when Greeks in Turkey were repatriated).

The cities contributed ships or money. Most took the easy option of money which allowed Athens to maintain its superior navy at little cost. It was rigorous in collecting the contributions, by force when necessary. While the league was not an Athenian empire, it has been called that in modern terms.

After further battles withe Persia in 466 and 450 BCE, a peace was agreed in the 449 BCE Peace of Callias. Athens continued to collect the tribute and used it to beautify the city (Parthenon etc) and pay for nearly half its citizens to on the public payroll.

This was a very cozy arrangement, however Athens went too far in getting involved in the Peloponnesian war, as a result of which it lost this comfortable empire, as well as wrecking the Greek world in the process.

They even ruled African parts such as he whole of ancient Egypt and even Libya. Persia was also some of the countries in Europe such as Turkey-Bulgaria-Albania.

The Islamic Republic of Iran

How can you defeat arena boss in prince of Persia the two throwns?

Now for the sake of all ma brothers out THERE I will Explain in Detail how to Kill the ARENA MONSTER. It took me about 12 hours to UNDERSTAND what a lot of ppl said was simple but LOOKED IMPOSSIBLE. At one point in time I felt I wud Quit since I was not going anywhere . But to all of u - who have not yet DONE IT -- Let me TELL YOU THIS BEATING THIS ARENA BIG OLD FAT **bleep** is EASY. Just Pay attention as to how u do it ... ( I am assuming by now U know how to go LEFT or RIGHT and have mastered the ART of reaching the PLATFORM from where to JUMP ON the BEAST)

Now Once u reach either Platform -

1) Go out on the ledge that Extends and rite on the Tip of It JUMP....... ( Now Notice Carefully --- ) When u Jump The Prince wud during the jump Raise the Dagger ( jst once) in Slow Motion( also referred to as shining and whtever) . At this MOMENT THE DAGGER OF PRINCE SHINES--- The moment u Notice this 1-2 sec slow motion during the jump when he raises his dagger(and it SHINES) JUST ONCE PRESS THE PRIMARY ATTACK BUTTON. ( There are two attack buttons Primary and Secondry)

Note:- Out here if u press this button twice thrice or press any other button (secondry) with it --- The beast will Overpower u....and throw u..

Now Follow this carefully ( After u SEE the PRINCE in slow motion and his DAGGER SHINES brightly Press Primary Attack Once) u will find that as the Prince lands on the Beast He will Stab the Beast badly Once ....

1) Now if u have landed on the RIGHT Side of the Beast while facing him ---U will find the prince will automatically run to the other shoulder ( donot use any controls - its automatic --- just wait and observe carefully) and the Beast will catch hold of him and rite around that time There wud be a slight SLOW DOWN ( Slow Motion) n where u wud see the prince raising the Dagger in slo mo and PRINCE's DAGGER SHINES BRIGHTLY for a moment ...At this point in time u will get the feeling that the BEAST has almost Clutched the prince but the moment U SEE Prince Dagger getting Bright, Press Primary Attack Button once again .

The attack wud again be a severe one if u hav done it correctly and it will injure the Beast Hand. The Prince wud remain on the shoulder and NOW AUTOMATICALLY Proceed to the Head. ( Warning donot try to control the Prince- All movement on BEast happen Automatically!!! Just mind wen to press PRIMARY attack ONCE) . Again after he Cluthes the Eyes - Watch Carefully there wud be after 2 sec a slight SLO MO(U SEE Prince Dagger getting Bright)...During which press PRIMARY BUTTON once...and u will see PRINCE Has INJURED ONE EYE OF the Beast and Jumps off him......Beast is Mad...If tBEAST HAS GOT HIS ONE EYE INJURED - one of the routes to climbing UP wud have got destroyed ( My guess is the one which has wooden stairs and PLates) . Now follow the Other Route to go up

2) . This time again jump from the Edge at the right moment and as u are jumping u wud notice a Slight SLO MO whr prince RAISES dagger(U SEE Prince Dagger getting Bright). Press PRIMARY ATTACK ONCE, and u will FIND The Prince Stabbing the BEAST On his LEFT SHOULDER. If u press this BUTTON EARLY OR LATE U will fall and u wud get the message Get ur TIMING RITE OR SOME STUFF LIKE THAT. Now if Prince lands on the BEAST LEFT SHOULDER( while u face him- i.e. Left for you) and has stabbed the BEAST u will find the BEAST will clutch the PRINCE in his hand. Don't Panic or try to Control anything. Now

The Prince May be in the Hands of the BEAST AWAY from the Shoulder ( and u are thinking u wud be thrown). While in the hands , Prince again will get into a SLO MO raising his Dagger (U SEE Prince Dagger getting Bright) and Rite at this moment immediately as u see the BRIGHT DAGGER - PRESS PRIMARY ATTACK BUTTON just ONCE again and u will See The Prince Gashed the BEAST Once more and the Beast Throws him in the AIR . Prince Lands on the FACE of the beast and Again for a few seconds ( OBSERVE CAREFULLY) and after a 1 -2 seconds will do a slight SLOW MOTION OF RAISING DAGGER /Bright Dagger ( Quickly PRESS PRIMARY ATTACK Button here ONCE) and u will find that Prince has Blinded the other eye of the **bleep**.

If u are observant , know how to reach the platform without getting hurt( that requires practice and good control) This part that I described above is SIMPLE - Just require ACCURATE OBSERVATION and RIGHT timing and not pressing too many buttons in times of panic.

Once u have Blinded the **bleep** just JUMP between his legs, and slash them.....Be careful cos he tends to STAY on his RIGHT LEG and KICK away with his LEFT...Keep on slashing him....and then the prince CLIMBS on his once too much damage is DONE. Again wait for the SLO MO thing to happen and press PRIMARY ATTACK ONCE. If u MISS that Moment, REVERSE TIME to get back to IT......... This time the Prince will deeply STAB the DEMON on his back and then Wud either be thrown on his shoulder or smthn similar....And while ur in Air u will find the PRINCE Doing the SLO MO Press PRIMARY STAB ONCE....and u will see the PRINCE KILLING THE BEAST.

This was a herculean effort to just RESPOND TO all my brothers out there..........( I had specially for writing this REPLY create an account here ) PLEASE COPY PASTE And PASS IT ON whereever u feel like.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why did peoples conquered by Cyrus the Great seldom rebel?

Cyrus the Great actively reached out to minorities and tribes in the areas he conquered and gave them a stake in the local government and the maintenance of their holy places. Since Cyrus' Empire did not seek to quash minority rights, but improve them, the conquered people aligned with the government forces, leading to general peace and security within the Persian Empire under his rule.

Some modern governments might learn something from his example.
