On October 29, 540 BCE Cyrus the Great entered the city of Babylon and captured the last king of the Neo-Babylonian Empire. After his death 10 years later, many believe Cyrus was interred in this tomb in Pasargadae. The account of Herodotus from his Histories states that Cyrus met his fate in a fierce battle with Tomyris the queen of the Massagetae. An alternative account from Xenophon's Cyropaedia contradicts the others, claiming that Cyrus died peaceably at his capital.
