This is a very readable outline of the disorder on the suspicious death of Cambyses. It shows how absolute monarchies are liable to violent changes of regime and how thrones are often unstable. I question that Darius was 'great'. He was an aristocratic opportunist but at the same time, to some degree, he was an enlightened ruler though not as enlightened as his predecessor Cyrus whose ideas he probably tried to follow. He failed to learn from defeats at Marathon and by the Scythians.
All in all this is very well written and easy for young people to understand
