This article is about a subject that lacks an official name and is known only by its nickname, title, or alias.

This article is about a mercenary who resembled Leonidas. You may be looking for Leonidas, the King of Sparta.

The False Leonidas (died 420s BCE) was an elderly mercenary who operated during the Peloponnesian War.

Bearing a close resemblance to the late King Leonidas I of Sparta, the mercenary claimed to be the king resurrected, though his claim was not widely believed. The few who did gave him contracts and confirmed their beliefs when he succeeded in completing the contracts.[1]

During the Peloponnesian War he crossed paths with the Spartan misthios Kassandra, who herself was a granddaughter of Leonidas.[2]

Behind the scenes

Depending upon her actions, Kassandra can either defeat The False Leonidas or recruit him as a lieutenant for the Adrestia.
