Discover the increasing prestige and influence of Athens over the other poleis within the League was becoming evident, as a uniquely democratic governmental system was developing there. Though the origins of the Great Peloponnesian War were not directly connected with Athens and Sparta, these two states were drawn into the contest by lesser forces beyond their control.
