Artaxerxes I

Artaxerxes I
(reigned 465–423 BC)
   King of Persia and ruler of Egypt. Son of Xerxes and Amestris. He succeeded to the throne following the murder of his father and his elder brother, Darius. He faced a major revolt in Egypt beginning in 459 BC led by Inaros, but his forces managed to crush the resistance in 454 BC. He installed Arsamesas satrap. He also signed a peace treaty with Athens in 449 BC to end the Greco-Persian wars. Following his death, the throne was briefly occupied by his sons, Xerxes II and Sogdianus, until a third son, Darius II, secured his rule.
