Diversity in counsel, unity in command.
— Cyrus the Great

Achaemenid Empireball was the first Persian dynasty, was of a stronk empire, and stretched from Thrace to the Indus Valley. At one point, they ruled between a fourth and a half of Earth-icon Earthball's population (which was much smaller back then, but still). Achaemenidball would remain in power for over two centuries until gradually weakened by rebellions, and conquered by Macedon-icon Alexander the Great in 330 BC. It also created the first human rights


Achaemenidball was born as the Zoroastrianism-icon Median vassal of Persis, which was created by the Iranian peoples who arrived in the area around 1000 BC. Under the leadership of Cyrus the Great, the Persians revolted against the Medes in 553 BC, and finally defeating them in 550 BC, gaining all of the Median territories. This eventually brought Achaemenidball into conflict with 2-icon Lydiaball and Babylon-icon Neo-Babyloniaball. After the conquest of the Lydian Kingdom, Cyrus turned east to quell the rebellions started by Bactriaball and Sakaball. Later, Cyrus conquered the Neo-Babylonian Empire, helping to free the Israel-icon Jewish slaves in Babylon-icon Babylon, allowing them to return to their homeland and restore Jerusalem-icon Jerusalem, including building the Second Temple. Cyrus eventually died on campaign in 503 BC in an expedition against the Scythia-icon Massagetae and was succeeded by his son Cambyses II.
