The Hebrew Daniel, member of an aristocratic family of Jerusalem, was the last prophet of the four great prophets. It is recorded that he was taken to Babylon as a teenager, where he was chosen by the king to be his officer and to interpret his dreams. Because of his knowledge and his wisdom, he conquered the trust of the king and was allowed to carry out his activities even after the conquest of Babylon by the Persians. Daniel survived the fall of Neo-Babylon, which he himself had predicted, but died a few year later.
