Pleistarchus or Plistarch (Ancient Greek: Πλείσταρχος; died 458 BC) was the Agiad King of Sparta from 480 to 458 BC. He was the son of Leonidas I and Gorgo. For the early part of his reign, his cousin Pausanias, acted as regent because Pleistarchus was not of age. A young Pleistarchus was portrayed by Giovani Cimmino in the 2007 feature film 300. A young Pleistarchus (titled Leo Jr.) was portrayed by Hunter Clary in the 2008 parody feature film Meet the Spartans.
