Persian Empire

Persian Empire:
King Cyrus and main characteristics

By 600 BC, the Assyrians were getting weaker. At this time the Medes and the Persians mixed into one group, under one king.

At first the Medes were in charge, but in 559 BC Cyrus, who was a Persian, made himself king, and from then on the Persians were in charge.

Cyrus the Great is remembered as a good ruler. He managed to unify 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 (believing in one god) and clearly felt strongly about his new faith.

Persians are very known for being the first ones to apply bureaucracy in their government. Bureaucracy is the collective organizational structure, procedures, protocols, and ser of regulations in place to manage activity, usually in large organizations and government.
