Portrait of Cyrus the Great.jpg

Personally I believe Cyrus was the most influential Persian leader.  Worthy of his name Cyrus The Great was the founder of the massive Persian Empire.  He was a leader unlike many others which may have been why he was so successful.  He was a wise millitary leader which was apparent in his ability to conquer so much land in so little time.  His unorthodox style of allowing captives to maintain their own lifestyle under his rule was unheard of up to that point.  The concept was so good it was continued even after his death by his son Darius as well as several others.  As you can see from his success he left a huge mark on this society which  lead them into a promising future such as theirs.
