Sparta had quite a ride in this tournament, showing themselves early to take no prisoners and devastating most of their neighbours early on. Their eventual loss to stronger empires was no surprise – it soon became clear that they were no contenders for the ultimate victory – and it was sad to see them demoted to the Dvinnish Empire.

But in this picture, we saw them in their proudest moments, tripling the size of their empire in two parts against overwhelming odds. The victory did not last, but it was a victory worthy of remembrance.
