Greco-Persian Wars [500-449BC]

The Greco-Persian Wars were a series of conflicts between Greek city-states and the Persian Empire, which began in 499 BC and lasted until 448 BC. Their cause was the effort of the Persian grand-kings Darius I and especially Xerxes I to conquer Ancient Greece by military force. However, despite all the material and human superiority of Persia, this endeavour ended in a fiasco.
