Spartacus (109 BCE – 71 BCE) was the most notable leader of the slaves in the Third Servile War, a major slave uprising against the Roman Republic on Old Earth.
His rebellion proved inspirational to many literary and political writers of later millenia, making Spartacus a folk hero among cultures both ancient and modern.
