Pericles name in Greek means 'Surrounded by Glory.‘ He was well named since he was to become an influential statesman for Athens during The Peloponnesian War until his death in 429 BC.
Pericles was born c. 495 BC in Athens, Greece. After inheriting money as a teen, he became a great patron of the arts. In 461, he assumed rule of Athens—a role he would occupy until his death.
During his leadership, he built the Acropolis and Parthenon and led Athens' recapture of Delphi, the siege on Samos and the invasion of Megara.
Pericles remained in charge of Athens until his death in 429 BC from the plague that swept Athens.It is noticeable from his career that he was one of the leading figures in securing Athens as a force in the Aegean and was influential in turning the Delian League of allies into an Empire with each state paying tribune to Athens.
Due to his character of not over reaching he was able to maintain that Empire something later leaders did not follow as they tried to increase their domain rather than stay with what they had.
The presentation covers the following:
