He fought a lot with Byzantine Empireball and even managed to take clay in Egypt and Armenia at first, but eventually lost it.

History[edit | edit source]
After Parthia's vassal, Persis became the ruler of Persia, Persis changed his name into Sassanid, which was named after the House of Sasan.
He continued his cousin Parthia did, fighting SPQRball. Even he made Persian territory larger. He did conquests to Central Asia, Oman, Syria, Yemen and Egypt. He wanted to being like his dad, Achaemenid did. He love rivaling Byzantine. His best friend was Ancient Quraish tribes in Mecca.
In 470s, he started to fight Byzantine. He dislikes Byzantine because Byzantine is Roman and Christian. He is Zoroastria.
In 480s, he declared war on the Hepthalites three times but the Hephtalites beat the Sassanian army into shit. The king Peroz was dead, and Kavadh came to claim the throne and did.
In 531, the great emperor Khosrow Anushirawan came to power and would eventually make the empire rich and powerful again. He fought against Belisarius and Justinian I, he won but the Romans took revenge on them by giving them a taste of their own medicine, especially at Dara(530).
In 560s, he made alliance with the Gokturks to defeat the Hephthalites and won. After Hephthalite died, He banned the Gokturks from trading with the Byzantines and the Gokturks were furious, however, the Sassanids were always on top.
In 570, he sent aids to Mecca, because Kingdom of Axum and Himyarite Kingdom attacked Mecca with lots of Elephants. But a flock of Birds carrying 3 fire rock from hell attacked Axum's army (See Holy Quran chapter Al Feel verse 1-5). After Axum failed, he attacked Himyarite and set protections in Yemen.
In 579, Khosrow Anushirawan died and the empire started to decline.
In early 600s,he declared war against the Byzantines for killing the emperor, Maurice. Maurice was a close friend to the reigning shah, Khosrow II and use that pretext as war. He suceeded in conquering Syria, Jerusalem and Egypt. However, a governor named Heraclius deposed the usurper and started a counterattack, defeating the Sassanids a lot and also, the Sassanid generals started fighting one another for personal glory. The Byzantines besieged the capital Ctesiphon for the 6th and last time(the Romans already besieged the city 5 times). Seeing no other choice, the Sassanids accepted the humiliating peace treaty and started a civil war, which severely weakened the empire further.
In 632, a Caliphate named Rashidun was established in the Arabian Peninsula. Although the Sassanian Government didn't consider them as a threat, a string of victories for the Arabs led by renowned general Khalid ibn al-Walid finally forced the Sassanids to be serious. The shah, Yazdegerd III recruited a large army of 50,000 troops headed by Spahbed(military general) Rostam Farrokhzad fought the Arabs. However, that army was beaten and Rostam himself didn't survive. The Battle of Nahavand sealed the fate of the empire completely and the Sassanian government fled to Tang Dynastyball, ending years of Zoroastrian domination within Persia and started a new age in Iranian culture.
