His Most Famous Accomplishment

Cyrus the Great was the first Achaemenid Emperor, he founded the nation of Persia.

I think he was a good leader.

He wasn't a cruel conqueror like most, rather he was very benevolent. He allowed the empires he conquered to continue as normal as long as they paid the 20% tax.
