      Common misconception. There was about 3000 which is still alot vs 180,000 persian ground forces, although leonidas sent small armies of men home for showing fear. This battle didnt influence the Greek world as much as pop culture gives it credit for, that came within the days after when the Greek

      Yes... but... He actually didn't. He and his 300 were killed... Xerxies overran over 2 thirds of the Greek states. It took Phillip of Macedon and his son Alexander to turn it all back around centuries later.

      Leonidas lead a combined force of 6000 thebans, athenians, thespians, and other Greeks, led by his guard of 300 Spartans, against a Persian army of between 100,000-350,000 men. The Greeks, thanks to their heavy armor, geography of the battlefield, and phalanx formation, held out against the best...

      It was actually 298. One got injured in the eye and sent home. The other fell behind in the march and missed the fight. However one commited suicide because they saw themselves as a disgrace for not being allowed to defend Thermopylae, and the other regained glory when he died in a diffrent battle.

      Herodotus says the Persians were 300 myriad, which is 10,000, so that would be 3,000,000, but he probably mistook a myriarchy for a chiliarchy, which is 1000. 300,000 is a much more likely number

      That is beyond wrong. First off there was only 25000 Persians. Second while there were only 300 Spartans under Leonidas there were about 5700 other Greeks from spartan allies. Finally Leonidas did not anticipate winning, he only tried to hold them off long enough for the Athenians to prep their trap

    • theboss9753
      Ok but they weren’t supposed to win, this was called the battle of Thermopylae, depicted in movies like “300” on Netflix and such, but they were meant to give Athens and other members of the Delian league time to prepare and time to arm. They actually were successful in that aspect and won the war

      Fun fact: the Greeks recorded that Persia had 1 million soldiers but they liked to hugely exaggerate numbers to make themselves look better. It’s more likely it was only around ~150,000-200,000

      There wasn't just 300 Spartans, they had 7-8 thousand troops from all across Greece and the persians didn't have one million troops, they had 120-300 thousand.

    • Mikescool16
      That movie was inaccurate. There were 300 Spartans but they each had at least two servants who occasionally followed them into battle. Also there were several thousand other Greeks from different regions who fought alongside King Leonidas and the 300 who get virtually no credit

      There were actually 298 Spartans. One named Aristodemus just ran back home, and another named Pantites was sent to Thessaly to get reinforcements. Pantites was so upset he hung himself, and Aristodemus was named “the coward” and was treated as such (it’s kinda neat if you look it up)
