Cyrus the Great and the Birth of the Achaemenid Persian Empire

With this video we start a series of programs and podcasts all dealing with ancient Persia and the beginnings of the Achaemenid Persian Empire of Cyrus II, better known to the world as Cyrus the Great. We’ll first take a quick look at the history of the region around the time when the first Iranian tribes entered the region, followed by the Medes and how they laid the groundwork for the rise of one of history’s greatest rulers, Cyrus the Great, founder of Persian Achaemenid Empire. We’ll also examine a good deal of the primary sources (such as the works of Herodotus, Babylonian chronicles, the Cyrus Cylinder, etc.) that help us to put together a better picture of who Cyrus was. You will not want to miss this episode!

We have performed many plays in bahrain purely for entertaining the Indian community here. Below are the links to the 2 gujerati plays. Anyone who subscribes to my channel will be able to see all our plays. No payment involved. We request you to kindly publicise the links to entertain our community for free, especially when people are stuck at home.
