Theron, the fictional corrupt Spartan politician

You will not enjoy this, but it will be over quickly.
~ Theron, as he prepares to rape Queen Gorgo
Theron is the secondary antagonist in the 2007 film 300.

He is portrayed by Dominic West, who also portrays Jigsaw, Simon Ambrose and Sab Than.


Theron is a corrupt Spartan politician, who wants all that Queen Gorgo controls. His most treacherous act was when Gorgo reluctantly submitted sexually to him in exchange for help in persuading the Spartan council to send reinforcements to Leonidas. after telling her 'she wouldn't enjoy this,' He then violently raped her and gloatingly maintained that her words would fall on deaf ears. When Theron arrogantly betrayed Gorgo and accused her of voluntary adultery in front of the Council, she turned his words back on him as she fatally stabbed him out of rage, which spills open a bag of Xerxes' gold from Theron's robe.

Marking his treachery, the Council united against Persia.
