Product Backstory
When a messenger arrives in Sparta with word from Xerxes of Persia, commanding the Spartans to surrender or die, King Leonidas makes the bold decision to defend his homeland against the tyrant lord. Despite the ominous premonitions of the Oracle, King Leonidas leads a small band of 300 soldiers to the gates of Thermopylae to ward off the Persian armies that threaten his people. The 300 are vastly outnumbered, but fight with great strength and bravery against the hordes of the Persian King. At the close of battle, though the 300 are defeated, the Persian numbers dwindle, their spirits greatly diminished. Word of the battle is sent ahead to Sparta, and forces are gathered, enough to defeat the remains of the Persian army. Fulfilling the Oracle's prophecy, King Leonidas sacrificed himself for Sparta, saving his people from Xerxes rule.
