Xerxes I was the third ruler of the Twenty-seventh Dynasty. The revolt that began during the
reign of Darius I, who was Xerxes' father, was finally laid to rest during the second year of
Xerxes I's reign. It is said that the slaves' lives were much harder during the time of Xerxes. It
is not certain whether this is true since Xerxes was much more involved elsewhere and paid
little attention to Egypt.
