The Greco-Persie Wars (an aa eften cried the Persie Wars) war a series o conflicts atween the Achaemenid Empire o Persie an Greek ceety-states that stairtit in 499 BCi[›] an lastit till 449 BC. The collision atween the fractious poleetical warld o the Greeks an the enormous empire o the Persies began when Cyrus the Great conquered the Greek-inhabitit region o Ionie in 547 BC. Strugglin tae rule the independent-minded ceeties o Ionie, the Persies appyntit tyrants tae rule each o them. This would prove tae be the soorce o much truible for the Greeks an Persies alik.
