  • Xerxes (300)
rdfs:comment
  • Xerxes is the primary antagonist of the 300 films but he serves as the secondary antagonist in 300: Rise of an Empire, alongside Artemisia based on the graphic novel 300. He is based on the real king Xerxes I of Persia who sent his army to fight against 300 Spartans in the battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC. Xerxes eventually won this battle by having superior numbers in his army and due to the Greek traitor Ephialtes, who aided him by showing him and the Persians the existence of a small pass in the Hot Gates that allowed Xerxes to attack them from behind. Xerxes is depicted as being extremely egocentric, and proclaims himself a "God-king." He demands that all those beneath him bow down to him.
