Sparta Grand Campaign

Sparta Faction

Sons of Herakles, bred for war, and raised to be soldiers, the citizens of Sparta are the finest infantry in the ancient world. Every aspect of Spartan life and society is geared towards warfare, their helot slaves enabling the citizens to pursue warrior perfection in the agoge and krypteia. Although neither Phillip II, nor his son Alexander the Great conquered Sparta itself, the Spartans were nevertheless eventually forced to yield to the League of Corinth. With the Greek world in turmoil following Alexander’s death, they are once more free to reclaim their former glory, leading Greece and the world beyond.
