Definition funny of Xerxes:

urbanMost of the other definitions were written by 14 year old kids who liked 300 a bit too much. In reality, Xerxes was an Emperor of the Persian Empire before Alexander the Great conquered it. He didn't look a thing like he did in the movie, btw. And he wasn't gay.

urbanStupid 14 year old kid who saw 300: omg lol persian ppl suk becuz of 300! xerxes was so ghey! even though 300 was historically very inaccurate and in reality it was the Spartans who were pedophiles...

urbanAncient Persian King that reigned over the Persian empire between 485 BC to 465 BC. For some reason was portrayed as 7 foot tall black metrosexual in the popular movie '300.'

urbanThat crap movie 300 did not depict Xerxes accurately.

urbanOk so in reality King Xerxes was a powerful Persian Emperor who ruled over the Persian empire from 485 to 465 BC. He was the son of Darius the Great and a descendent of Cyrus the Great. He was not at all gay like depicted in the movie "300", that movie was so inaccurate. King Xerxes married Esther a Jewish young woman who saved many Jewish people during the persecution of Jews in Persian Empire. She pleaded with her husband to spare the lives of her people, the Jews and he did, giving them the right to defend themselves in his kingdom. The story of Queen Esther and King Xerxes can be read in the Bible or seen in the ACCURATE movie "One Night with the King."

urbanKing Xerxes is powerful enough to rule an empire with his eyes closed and hands tied behind his back.
