Storyboard Text

  • Around 490BC, the Persians and the Greeks had a war. A messenger called Pheidippedes was sent to Sparta to ask for help.
  • Pheidippedes ran all the way to Sparta to ask them for help in this war, but he was rejected. He had to run all the way back to Greece again.
  • The Persians invaded on their ships. There were around 48000 Persians but only 10000 Greek soldiers. It was a small chance that Greece would win.
  • The Greeks attacked from the side and confused the Persians. Taking advantage of this, the Greeks fought and fought, and they won! 6400 Persians died yet only 192 Greeks died. 
  • The Persians tried to escape on their ships. The Greeks sent Pheidippedes to tell the Spartans the good news.
  • Pheidippides ran all the way to Sparta but died after he delivered the message. What Pheidippides did started a run we now call a 'marathon'. The first marathon of the Greek Olympics was won by a man called Spirodon Louis, who was also a messenger!
