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.
