Biography Pericles
photo Pericles
444 - 429 years. BC

Xanthippe, the father of Pericles and his mother Agarista belonged to the most famous Athenian birth. Xanthippe became famous during the Greco-Persian wars. He commanded the Athenian fleet and defeated the Persians at Mycale promontory off the coast of Asia Minor. Agarista came from the same kind Alcmaeonidae that Cleisthenes, the famous political figure, whose laws are finished in Athens with the sole authority of rulers and established democracy. Already at birth Pericles, strong and healthy child, startled the unusual size and shape of the head. This shortcoming has remained with him all his life, and to hide it, the portraits of Pericles is always depicted wearing a helmet. But the writers of comedies in every way abused unusually large head of Pericles and called it Lukovitsegolovy.
