Pelopidas was the most renowned politician and general of Thebes and the Boiotian League in antiquity after Epaminondas. Born between c. 410 and 405 BCE, Pelopidas hailed from an aristocratic Theban family. His life and death were interwoven with the ascendancy of his home town at the time of the so-called Theban Hegemony (370s and 360s BCE).
