Agesilaus the Second, King of Sparta (444 B.C.E.-360 B.C.E.)

Agesilaus II, or Agesilaos II (Greek Ἀγησίλαος) (444 BCE-360 BCE) was a king of Sparta, of the Eurypontid dynasty, ruling from approximately 400 BCE to 360 BCE, during most of which time he was, in Plutarch's words, "as good as thought commander and king of all Greece," and was for the whole of it greatly identified with his country's deeds and fortunes.
