Spartacus
Action, Adventure, Biography
The inspiration behind this series is the Thracian Gladiator Spartacus,
who led a slave uprising against the Roman Republic. The Thracians had
been persuaded by Claudius Glaber to serve as auxiliaries in the Roman
legions in a campaign against the Getae, who had often plundered
Thracian lands. However after Glaber reneges on the deal and switches
his attentions from the Getae to attack Mithridates in Asia Minor, the
Thracians feel betrayed and mutiny. Captured by Glaber, Spartacus is
condemned to death as a Gladiator, whilst his wife Sura is condemned to
slavery. Spartacus, however, proves to be a formidable gladiator, and
defeats the four gladiators tasked with executing him. He becomes a
favorite of the crowd, leading Senator Albinius to commute his death
sentence to a life of slavery. Spartacus is purchased by Batiatus for
gladiator training, who promises to help him find Sura if he proves
himself in training. As the series develops, the story follows the
betrayals and machinations…
