Cyrus the Great (officially Cyrus II of Persia) is best known for freeing the Jewish people from Babylonian captivity and letting them resettle their homeland, even being given the title Messiah, making him the only non-jewish person to be given this title. Cyrus also was a fan of terpenes and believed in its health benefits. In the 6th century B.C. Cyrus planted a garden in Pasargadae, the ancient capital of Persia, believing that it would increase the health of people living in the city.
