Persia

Persia is a country that we have recently learned about. It is located in the Mesopotamia area. It began by taking over the Assyrian empire and built itself up from there. It is very cool how they run their government. One of the first king of Persia was named Cyrus the Great. His son, Cambyses, took over Egypt and added it to the Persian territory. One of his sons named Darius, added India to the Persian territory. This means that Persia had a huge territory. It also had a great military, however they were not very war like. Persia is a very interesting country.

The Persian military were called Immortals. The reason for this is because when a person dies, they are immediately replaced by another person, so it's as if the spot never dies. The job is professional which means that the soldiers get paid a certain amount of money for fighting.

It is kind of interesting that the Persians were kind people and yet they had one of the best armies of their time.
