    The armored knight arose out of a development borrowed from Asian invaders, the stirrup, which arrived in Europe in the Seventh Century.

    The Immortals should not be higher ranked than the Spartans. if you read up on your history, you would know that about 300 Spartans made the Immortals look like a bunch of chumps at the Battle of Thermopylae. If it were not for a traitor among the Spartans, the Persian king Xerxes would have eventually had to retreat because his losses would have been too great to continue the invasion of Greece. Not to mention that his army was defeated afterwards by the city states of Greece. Look at the facts of history before you write something. The Spartan warrior proved to be a better fighter than the Persian Immortal.

      I also forgot to mention the Spartans training. Being started at a very young age all Spartan males were trained in the art of combat. Spartan boys were encouraged to steal or do whatever they had to do in order to survive. If they were caught doing so, the punishment would be severe. Broken bones and other injuries were a normal part of the training. Spartan warriors were taught to ignore pain entirely and engage in battle. The Spartan warriors bronze armor was superior to the Immortals light armor. Even though the Immortal’s had massive numbers it proved essentially useless against the Spartans at Thermopylae. The Spartan warrior is arguably one of the best, if not the best warrior of all time.
