Cyrus governed his subjects with wisdom and generosity, respecting their different customs and beliefs. For example, he allowed the Jews, who had been made slaves in babylon, to return to Palestine and practice their own religion. Even the Greek colonies of Asia Minor made submission to this sovereign who was long known as 'King if the World'. He was succeeded by his son, Cambyses.
