The Persian Empire

Lecture no. 12 from the course: Origins of Great Ancient Civilizations

 The Persian Empire

Taught by Professor Kenneth W. Harl | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

We conclude the course with a look at an empire that may have had, at its peak, as many as 40 million subjects, and which, in its imperial organization, is perhaps the best-ordered until the age of Rome.

Another excellent course by Prof. Harl. However, Please improve pronunciation. Ear-Ón, not I-rán, for the country name Iran.
