~ Persian King

The Persian King is a major antagonist in the video game; God of War: Chains of Olympus. He's the ruler of the invading Persian Empire.


The Persian King sought to purge Greece of its gods with the use of his great armies and the Basilisk, putting him at odds with the gods of Olympus, who sent Kratos to deal with him.

Confronting Kratos

He uses his sword to deal some damage to Kratos and even sets it on fire. He'll even summon a power demon-like creature known as the Efreet. However when Kratos defeated him the Persian King quickly showed himself to be a coward at heart and begged repeatedly for his life - even offering Kratos his kingdom, his women and his gold.
