Keeping this in view, how old was Leonidas?
60 years (540 BC–480 BC)
is 300 Spartans a true story? Good question, the movie 300 is based on the Battle of Thermopylae, holding off nearly 100,000 to 150, 000 Persians. The movie is about that victory of a few brave men holding their ground against a larger adversary. Yes, it's a true story. But, the Spartans weren't something depicted as in the movie 300.
Simply so, when was the statue of Leonidas built?
Why did Leonidas only take 300?
Why did the king of Sparta (Leonidas) decided to bring 300 soldiers to the Battle of Thermopylae instead of thousands more? TL;DR: Leonidas had to depart from Sparta with just a small advance force due to religious reasons, but circumstances made him unable to wait for the full force to reinforce him.
