    The Neo-Babylonian Empire fell to the Persians whose king was Cyrus. The end of the Neo-Babylonian Empire  happened about  560 BC. It is called Neo-Babylonian because there was a previous Babylonian Empire. Herodotus provides a history of Babylon and how Cyrus conquered it in his "The Persian Wars".  Nebuchadnezzar's successor was not as able a king as Nebuchanezzar.

    Babylon existed as a port on the Mesopotamia for 3000 years before it became great. Kings, like Hamurabi & Nebuchadnezzar ruled a large area & several kingdoms. Part of what made it great was the administration (still taught today) & it's public works. As an Empire, it lasted from 625 to 536 BC. Cyrus The Great, Persian, ended the Empire. The books of Kings, Jeremiah, Daniel,  Genesis (10:10), and Revelation have some interesting insights.

    • I assume you mean a "port on the [Euphrates]". Mesopotamia was a region, not a river of portage. But the earliest Babylon could be considered to have become "great" is when Hammurapi reigned, c.1800BC. At that time Babylon had only existed as a small town for about 500 years, not 3,000.

    Why can't you just read a book fishface? Or at least a credible online article.

    The Persians conquered the Babylonian Empire in the mid-6th Century BC.
