Eraicon-Individuals Eraicon-Templars


Xerxes I of Persia (c. 519 BCE – c. 465 BCE), also known as Xerxes the Great, was the son of Darius I, the Emperor of Achaemenid Persia, during the Greco-Persian Wars. Like his father, Xerxes I was a strong ally of proto-Templars.[1][2]

These proto-Templars aided Xerxes in his suppression of revolts in Egypt and Babylon, as well as his attempted conquest of Greece.[1] In 480 BCE, Xerxes led a second Persian invasion of Greece, where his armies clashed with the army of King Leonidas of Sparta in Malis.[3]

In 465 BCE, Xerxes was killed by Darius, later considered to be one of the first proto-Assassins, marking the first recorded use of the Hidden Blade.[4][5]
