Athena – Goddess of wisdom, courage & inspiration

The Goddess of Wisdom and War. Athena is closely called upon as the giver of wisdom, courage and inspiration.

Historians aren’t entirely sure if the city of Athens got it’s name from Athena or if it was the other way around. We’re going to go with the city being named after this awesome goddess. She was gifted the head of the Gorgon Medusa by Perseus and also wielded a shield that could turn her enemies to stone. It’s not clear if the gift and the shield are interrelated but it’s still a cool weapon!

She is also known as; “The One with gleaming eyes” and “The One who fights in front.” She is known as the female counterpart to Ares and is associated with wisdom in battle, unlike Ares who is simply associated with violence… She often helped the classical heroes of ancient Greece like Odysseus, Heracles, Perseus and Argus by giving them the wise and inspirational guidance they needed to complete their quests.

Agis III (Once King of Sparta)

Agis III (Once King of Sparta)

Chances are, you’ve probably never heard of Agis III. Even though he had one of the coolest last stands in the history of the recorded world, Agis III is still widely forgotten by history, probably because he was defeated by another badass humbly known as Alexander the Great and because of that kickass movie 300.

Even though he was eventually defeated, Agis III ruled Sparta for nine years, after the death of his father. He tried as hard as he could to fight against the incoming menace that was Alexander the Great of Macedonia, but wound up (like everyone else Alexander fought) on the losing end. He fell in battle after being wounded several times to the front of his body, then picked himself back up (bleeding heavily) and held the pass by himself to give his men time to escape. People were so afraid to come at him, this god of death on the battlefield, that he had to be killed by a thrown javelin instead of a sword.
