Rhoda was pleased that her immortal infantry managed to circumvent the Spartan army in one night. They had no choice but to retreat, proving again that the strength in numbers mattered most. Rhoda could see the army's withdrawal in the distance as she began her next plan: to push back Hydarnes' army and bring to her beloved Xerxes the head of Leonidas.
Rhoda is a female given name, originating in both Greek and Latin. Its primary meaning is "rose" but it can also mean "from Rhodes", the Greek island originally named for its roses. The name was mostly used in the 18th and 19th centuries
