In 480 B.C. King Leonidas lead an army of around 7,000 soldiers, including just 300 Spartans. King Leonidas has been memorialized in history based on his bravery and fighting prowess, along with the bravery and fighting prowess of his 300 Spartans.
One thing that he is most well known for happened at the battle of Thermopylae while battling against the Xerxes and the Persian Empire. When he realized that he had been betrayed and that the Persian army had found a way around the Spartans position at the Hot Gates, he sent the remainder of his army away, staying to fight a battle he knew he could not win with only his 300 Spartans and a few other allies.
But there they stood, shoulder to shoulder, shield to shield. Standing for right. Standing for honor. Possessing the strength, courage and discipline to fight a war that needed to be fought because those they loved would be in jeopardy if they did not. Winning was not the objective.
The world had to know that in the darkest hour, free men stood against a tyrant, that few stood against many, and before this battle was over, even a god-king can bleed.
His bravery and efforts have been the model for the protectors of society ever since.
