About The Spartan Warrior Chess Set - 11"

The legend

No King was ever that heroic, no warrior ever fought that bravely, no battle was ever lost that gloriously. King Leonidas and his 300 soldiers made the most notorious sacrifice of all times fighting against the Persians in the battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C. Their story and the tragic betrayal that led to their defeat, is being told, written, sung, filmed and memorized endlessly through the centuries to this day.

The chessmen

Leonidas (Pawn) is depicted armed for battle, holding his notorious shield with the greek letter Λ (L) engraved. The King represents the famous semi-god hero, Hercules, the son of Zeus, and the Knight of the famous winged horse, Pegasus. The Queen figure is a replica of the famous statue Aphrodite of Milos (200 B.C.) and the Bishop is Apollo, from the Temple of Zeus in Olympia (460 B.C.). The Castle is inspired by the Doric pillars of the Parthenon on the Acropolis (440 B.C.)
