My rule marked the beginning of a period filled with ruthlessness and brutality.
A mausoleum of immortality seemed the only answer to my questions of a divine life.
People will find me on a farm,
but a farm it is no longer.
Men, horses and weapons guarded me, but alas, although my silent warriors resembled the days of pomp and vigour, they were crushed to pieces by my enemy.

Who am I?

Good, but not very hard, i personaly like the riddles that involve more thinking than the ones that just depend on if you've had a good history lesson or not.

I agree with underdog these are not teasing your brain it is just seeing if you know a lot of history

Since I do study history, I do like such riddles... I found it under trivia, so I don't object! And I do have to admit: I didn't find it... I rather thought about Egyptian Pharaos, who's pyramide's are mausoleums in some way...!

Thanks for that. I try and vary my teasers so they can cater for a wider audience.
