The world's first human rights charter was created by the Persians
While Hollywood extols the virtues of Spartan culture, the world's first human rights charter is thought to have been drafted by the Persians (or at least something very similar to the scope of human rights, as believed by both the British Museum and United Nations). Since it is essentially a cylinder-shaped piece of baked clay with engraved Akkadian writing from 539 BC, this charter is more commonly referred to as the Cyrus Cylinder. When King Cyrus' army entered Babylon and peacefully overcame the legendary city, he gave the order to create the artefact. The ancient writings on the tablet primarily speak about equality for people of all races, religions, and languages.
