The persians

Post  Francisco Jimenez on Tue Dec 02, 2014 7:20 pm

At first Medes was in charge, but in 559 BC Cyrus, who was a Persian, made himself king, and from then on the Persians were in charge. Cyrus soon also conquered the whole rest of West Asia: the Babylonians, the Assyrians, the Jews, the Phoenicians and the Syrians. He is remembered as one of the best rulers of all time. He managed to unite a very diverse group of people, with many different languages and religions. At the same time, he allowed each group to keep their own religion. This is especially surprising because he himself had recently converted to Zoroastrianism and clearly felt strongly about his new faith.

Great job Francisco! Did you know that their religion, Zoroastrianism, was a monotheistic religion? The Persian leaders also showed great mercy, which was good. Very interesting topic, good job! Very Happy

Great work, Francisco! Cyrus was one of the best rulers that Persia ever had. He was the first one that actually showed mercy to both his people and to his enemies. He was afraid and yet didn’t show it, like all emperors did. He brought great power to his rule and to his people and everyone respected him. Due to his courageousness, rulers after him were just as great.

The Persians had great rulers. Cyrus, Darius, and others were great rulers who had accomplished a lot. They were very smart and forgiving, unlike the Spartans who killed anyone who got in their way. The Persians didn't have the best army, but they had a great and organized civilization.

I honestly find the Persians unless after they got defeated by the Athenians. The Persian empire had like 5 times the mount of soldiers that the Athenians had. The reason why the Athenians won is because they were very organized and had new ways of fighting. They also had traps and were smarter.

Francisco what you have wrote was really interesting, because how you talk about the Persians really thoroughly. The thing that was really important that you have mention was how he conquered the whole rest of West Asia. Something that you could have mention how he had son called, “Darius’ who he was the one who made the country in satrapies which were 28 provinces. Still what have done was really good talking about the thing that Cyrus did and the union with other culture. Very Happy
