Mithridates (Persian general)
Mithridates or Mithradates (Greek: Μιθριδάτης or Μιθραδάτης) was a Persian noble. His wife was the daughter of Darius III with the sister of Pharnaces, which makes him son-in-law of Darius. He was slain by the hand of Alexander the Great himself, at the Battle of the Granicus in 334 BC, when Alexander plunged his lance through Mithridates' face.
