While Leonidas lead the Spartans against the Persians at Thermopylae, Themistocles lead the Athenian forces at the Battle of Salamis against Artemisia and the Persian fleet. While few foes underestimate Themistocles’ ferocity on the battlefield, many are not aware of his skill and cunning in the arts of politics and diplomacy. Not only did he manage to rebuff Artemisia’s varied advances, but Themistocles forged an alliance with Sparta, a goal once thought unachievable. Together with his new allies, Themistocles managed to turn back the tide and thwart the Second Persian Invasion soundly.
