Cambyses Ii in Wikipedia
Cambyses II (Old Persian: 𐎣𐎲𐎢𐎪𐎡𐎹  Kɑmboujie, Persian: کمبوجیه, d. 522 BC) was the son of Cyrus the Great (r. 559–530 BC), founder of the Persian Empire and of its first dynasty. His grandfather was Cambyses I, king of Anshan. Following Cyrus' conquests of the Near East and Central Asia, Cambyses further expanded the empire into Egypt during the Late Period. His forces invaded the Kingdom of Kush (located in what is now the Republic of Sudan) without any breakthrough successes.
