Xerxes I (813 words)
Xerxes I, was a Persian king (reigned 485 - 465 BC) of the Achaemenid dynasty.
This probably was the reason why Xerxes in 484 BC abolished the Kingdom of Babel[?] and took away the golden statue of Bel (Marduk, Merodach), the hands of which the legitimate king of Babel had to seize on the first day of each year, and killed the priest who tried to hinder him.
The story begins in the third year of the reign of Xerxes, which would be 484 B.C. He did not have a wife named "Vashti," (or "Esther," either) then or ever (his wife at this time was Amestris, daughter of a Persian general), but "Vashti" was the name of an Elamite goddess.
