  • He started his political career at an early age, and as he was afraid that many people would target him for his high class, he organized and promoted all interest to middle and lower class. He did many great things and he mainly wanted to strength the democracy in Athens. 
  • Pericles died in 429 BC in Athens, Greece. He had three boys that were named, Pericles the younger, Paralus, and Xanthippus. The cause of his death was the Peloponnesian war. While Sparta had Athens under siege, the towns folks caught a disease which caused Athens to surrender and many died.
