Greece is the Homeworld of Kratos and has many smaller cities inside it. One of these is Sparta. Kratos grew up in Sparta, and became one of its greatest warriors. Like all other Spartan boys, Kratos was sent off to recieve military training at age seven. Soon after, he grew to become its greatest general, leading them through large amounts of battles.
Raised as a Spartan, he is sometimes referred to as Spartan or Ghost of Sparta, the latter being due to having the ashes of his wife, Lysandra and child, Calliope, forever coated to his skin. In God of War II, Kratos is worshipped throughout Sparta as the new God of War, and under his command, they siege city after city.
Another notable character from Sparta is the Last Spartan. During a fight with Kratos, in which his true identity was hidden from the former god, he gets mortally wounded. In his dying breath, the Spartan informs Kratos of Sparta's destruction at the hands of Zeus. The people cried out for their god to save them, but he did not come. With that, Kratos' hatred for the King of Olympus grew even stronger. By going back in time to fight Zeus, Kratos ultimately saved Sparta along with the Last Spartan.However, after killing Poseidon, which caused a massive flood over all of Greece, Kratos most likely, although unintentionally, wiped out all of Sparta but some of its inhabitants survived the flooding.
Sparta also appeared in God of War: Ghost of Sparta, as Kratos travelled to Sparta through the mountains of Aroania, and hitched a ride from (a rather unwilling) Erinys, daughter of Thanatos, ruler of Death's Domain. There, he went to the Temple of Ares, and found a ghost, in the image of his younger self. After defeating said ghost and obtaining the Skull of Keres, Kratos resolved to go to Atlantis once again to find his brother, Deimos.
Sparta also houses a brothel where the men and soldiers can choose to have intercourse with any of the women.
