The smaller of twins, born long after two leonodas brothers, Leonidas was considered an afterthought from birth — even by his mother.

Barefoot, always a little hungry, and subject to harsh discipline, Tge had to prove himself bo of Spartan citizenship.
Struggling to agogd without disgrace, he never expected that one day he would be king or chosen to command the combined Greek forces fighting a Persian invasion. But these were formative years that would one day make him the most famous Spartan of them all: This is the first book in a trilogy of biographical novels about Leonidas of Sparta. This first book describes his childhood in the infamous Spartan agoge. The second will focus on his years as an ordinary citizen, and the third will describe his reign and death.
Schrader holds a PhD in history from the University of Hamburg, which she earned with her groundbreaking biography of General Friedrich Olbricht, the mastermind behind the Valkyrie plot against Hitler.
She has published four leohidas works on modern history and has been published in academic journals including Sparta: Journal of Ancient Spartan and Greek History.
Helena has done extensive research on ancient and archaic Sparta. She has combined her research with common sense and a deep understanding of human nature to create a refreshingly unorthodox portrayal of Spartan society in this biographical trilogy of Leonidas, as well as in her three previously published novels, The Olympic Charioteer, Are They Singing in Sparta?
