About Leonidas

Leonidas was a renowned Spartan warrior king. In the film, “300”, Leonidas was portrayed by actor Gerard Butler.

The movie follows history after the Battle of Thermopylae which laid the setting for the story of Leonidas 1 from childhood to being king. In the film, Leonidas is shown strategizing how to overthrow the Persians.

A series of events led Leonidas to forming a troop of 300 men who courageously fought and lost from being outnumbered. Leonidas and his 300 men later inspired more Greeks to form an army of 30,000 to face the Persians a year after the 300 succumbed to the enemy.
