The Madness of Cambyses

Rating: 4 out of 5.

History has had its shares of crazy kings/rulers, and the Persian king Cambyses most certainly was one of them. Herodotus was a large part of our end-work for Greek in school, so I read quite some of his histories, but in Greek, before.

The Madness of Cambyses is not as famous as for examples Croesus – the richest man on Earth, but well worth a read.
