    No. Xerxes was the son of Darius.

    Darius invaded Greece and lost at the battle Marathon.

    Xerxes invaded latter and somehow became seven tall in that idiotic movie.

    The book of Daniel is not history. It was written in the time of Antiochus epiphanes, c. 167 BC.

    No, they are two seperate Persian kings with their own history.
