city states as the Leagues history homework help

learning activities A series of conflicts and wars would follow that would greatly impact and reduce the authority that Athens and Sparta once held over the other city-states, as the “Leagues” with which they used to unite less powerful city-states under their command soon became little more than tributaries for which to build an Hellenic empire under a single banner.

Neither, Athens or Sparta could maintain their status as the dominant city-state and eventually weakened each other to such an extent that the city-state of Thebes took advantage of their depleted authority and rose to be the dominant power by crushing both militarily. However, none of these city-states were able to unify all of Greece or spread a Hellenic culture under their own particular banner. Oddly, enough that task would be accomplished by Macedonia. A territory located in the northeast peninsula of Greece and was populated by peoples that the Greeks considered to be non-Hellenic, as there was no accounting, from their perception, of any ancestral tie to Hellen, thusly making them “barbarians” especially since Macedonia had allied with the Persians during the Greco-Persian War.
