Leonidas was a fifth century Spartan military king whose stand against the invading Persian army at the pass of Thermopylae in central Greece is one of the enduring tales of Greek heroism invoked throughout Western history as the epitome of bravery exhibited against overwhelming odds.
After the Persian army of Xerxes invaded Greece, the Spartan army prepared to join the armies of the other Greek states and march to face the Persians, so Leonidas bravely led a small force of Greeks, mostly his Spartan royal guard, but also Thespian and Thebans, against the much larger Persian army, at the pass of Thermopylae in 480 B.C.
Spartan team intelligence allowed Leonidas and his men to hold the pass for 3 days. It gave valuable time to the Greek armies to prepare for battle and later defeat the Persians.
