Croesus consulted the Oracle at Delphi if he should battle the Persians. The oracle said that if Croesus went to war a great empire would be destroyed. It turned out to be his!

Yes it did!  Initially, Cyrus ordered that Croesus be executed, but in a twist of events, they became friends.  Eventually, Croesus became a trusted, long time adviser to Cyrus.
