Thucydides was a distinguished Athenian general and historian. He has given the historical account of the fifth-century BC war between Athens and Sparta until the year 411 BC in his work titled ‘History of the Peloponnesian War.’ He is regarded as the father of the school of ‘political realism,’ besides being considered as the ‘father of scientific history,’ by many.
