This is a historical cartoon in honor of Cyrus the Great. The first 4 minutes are scenes of Animated
Warfare depicting Cyrus's Conquest of Babylon. The rest of the movie is historical information.

Cyrus the Great was born in 576 BCE.
When his father died in 540 BCE
King Cyrus United the tribes of the Persian People
and in 539 BCE began his Military Campaign to capture Babylon.

Cyrus is the father of the Persian Empire, liberator of the Babylonian captives, and was a devout Zoroastrian King.

A production of Zarathushtra.org

nice done, and a nice read...

i'll start with a flaw - as it is just one :)

when the video ends and the text part (the last pages) begins --- there is no signal that u have to click on from there and even the clickable area is not always in the same spot (at least that's how it seemed to me) - O' Fortuna ran out before i started clicking to see the rest of the text.

as for the rest - well done, a little dramatization, a little text and a nice bit of info - all new to me as i have known of Cyrus only by name and title ...

nice to see some interesting educational videos.

good job. :)
