Kroisos, the last king of Lydia, held sway over a prosperous kingdom in western Anatolia from around 595 BC to 546 BC. His reign was marked by notable achievements, with Lydia becoming renowned for its wealth. The phrase as rich as Croesus reflects the opulence associated with his name. Under Kroisos, Lydia expanded its influence, conquering Ionian Greek cities along the western coast of Anatolia. Notable among these conquests were cities like Ephesus and Miletus, which fell under Lydia's dominion.

Kroisos also engaged in diplomatic relations with various Greek city-states, and his interactions with the Oracle of Delphi are particularly noteworthy. The Oracle's response, perceived as a prediction of victory over the Persians, played a pivotal role in Kroisos's decision to wage war against Cyrus the Great, the formidable leader of the Persian Empire. However, the Battle of Thymbra in 546 BC marked a turning point. Kroisos suffered defeat, and Lydia succumbed to Persian rule.

The tale of Kroisos is intricately linked with the famous incident involving the Oracle of Delphi. Seeking guidance before the war, Kroisos received an ambiguous prophecy that a great empire would be destroyed. The unforeseen consequence was the downfall of his own kingdom. Following his defeat, Kroisos became a captive of Cyrus, and the details of his fate vary among historical accounts. Some suggest he narrowly escaped execution through his actions or divine intervention. The rise and fall of Kroisos and Lydia serve as a poignant chapter in the ancient Near East's historical narrative, illustrating the uncertainties of fate and the consequences of relying on oracles. The legacy of Kroisos endures as a cautionary tale, emphasizing the unpredictable nature of power and fortune in the annals of ancient history.
