Artaxerxes I Longimanus
Artaxerxes I, otherwise known as Longimanus (Long-Handed) was son of Xerxes the Great, reigned as King of the Medo-Persian empire from 465 to 424BC. He was succeeded by his son Artaxerxes II.
The title of Longimanus literally meaning "long handed" probably does not mean that one arm was longer than normal. But rather ironically (considering his parentage) that one arm as actually shorter. The truth probably is similar to the gammy arm recently manifest in Kaiser Wilhelm II, who also received his shorter arm from inbreeding of the royal house.
