The Greco-Persian Wars, also called Persian Wars were a series of conflicts between the Achaemenid Empire of Persia and the Greek city-states that started in 499 BC and lasted until 449 BC. Darius and Xerxes sought to control Greece around the Mediterranean coast by absorbing Greek colonies. The fighting was most intense during 2 invasions that Persia launched against mainland Greece between 490 and 479. The fighting began when Cyrus the Great conquered the Greek-inhabited region of Ionia in 547 BC.

Although the Persian empire was at the peak of its strength, the collective defense mounted by the Greeks overcame seemingly impossible odds and even succeeded in liberating Greek city-states on the fringe of Persia itself. In the end the Greek triumph ensured the survival of Greek culture and political structures long after the demise of the Persian empire.

The second stage of the Persian War began when the Persians landed on the Greek shore with a huge army of maybe 2,000,000 men under the command of King Xeres I. An advance party of only 5,000 Greeks, Spartans and other allies, under the command of Spartan king Leonidas, held off the advancing Persian forces at the famous "Pass of Thermopylae”.

They were eventually defeated after the Persian soldiers were shown a secret mountain way around the pass, although every last Spartan fought until he was killed. With the defeat on land, the Greek fleet withdrew south after the Battle of Artemisium.

Concerned that the victorious Greeks would sail north and destroy the pontoon bridges he had built over the Hellespont, Xerxes withdrew to Asia with the bulk of his men.
