Xerxes, the disturbing and wicked Persian emperor, extraordinary antagonist of Leonidas and his spartans, returns as the protagonist in this work, which brings us to the majestic sceneries of 300. The sovereign of persia, who in the fifth century before Christ, had created an empire in the vast, decided to gather the most powerful army ever to invade Greece and avenge the defeat of his father Darius. Xerxes is not only a sovereign, is a god. But another sovereign and “another god” is going to appear on the stage of history: Alexander the Great. The clash between two irreconcilable worlds is, therefore, to re-ignite!
