The First Persian War
The First Persian War
The First Persian War began in 492 BCE. The Persian empire was very big. It streched to ancient Indus River valley. But the Persian found out that the Greeks are helping them. The Persian emperor got mad and sent some of his warriors to the Greek peninsula to squash the Greeks . But the Greeks defeated the warriors and when the Persian emperor founds that out, he got even more angry. Now the Persian emperor’s goal is to kill the Greeks, so he sent a lot of ships to the Greek peninsula. The emperor sat on the cliff because he wanted to watch Greeks die . The Greeks have small ships and moved quickly . So they threw burning woods at them. The Persian ships soon caught on fire and died .
Instead of watching the Greeks die, the emperor saw the Persians die
The Persian emperor escaped. Instead of watching the Greeks die, the emperor saw the Persians die. So at last the war ends
at 490 BCE. The results of the war is that Greek won. Also the city states Mecedon, Thrase, and Lonia got their independence from Persia.
