Miltiades: the Athenian general who defeated King Darius and the Persian twice in one day, the first at the Battle of Marathon!


Section headingEdit

Miltiades (550-489 BC) defeated King Darius' Persians at the Battle of Marathon in a little more than 3 hours, while the Persian navy admiral loaded up cavalry and other troops headed to Athens to try to conquer Greece. But after the victory at Marathon, the Athenians marched 22 miles to Athens, discouraging the Persians, in which they bailed out.
