    Ancient Greece was a mixture of city-states, not a unified country. Each city-state had its own ruler and type of government. the most famous are Athens and Sparta. Athens was the head of the Delian League, an association of approximately 150 5th-century BC Greek city-states, whose purpose was to continue fighting the Persian Empire after the Greek victory in the Battle of Plataea at the end of the Greco–Persian Wars.

    Athens:

    The city of Athens during classical antiquity (508-322 BC) was a notable polis (city-state) of Attica, Greece, leading the Delian League in the Peloponnesian War against Sparta and the Peloponnesian League. Athenian democracy was established in 508 BC under Cleisthenes following the tyranny of Hippias. This system remained remarkably stable, and with a few brief interruptions remained in place for 180 years, until 322 BC (aftermath of Lamian War) . The peak of Athenian hegemony was achieved in the 440s to 430s BC, known as the Age of Pericles. The Athenian Assembly elected their leader, known as the strategos (q.v.).

    Sparta:

    Sparta was a city-state in ancient Greece. From c. 650 BC it rose to become the dominant military power in the region and as such was recognized as the overall leader of the combined Greek forces during the Greco-Persian Wars. Sparta had hereditary kings. Instead of one king, they had two co-kings, one from each branch of the royal family. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rulers_of_Sparta

    there is not any answer to the chief query. historic Greece did no longer all at as quickly as provide up< with a defined very final chief. They dwindled from historic previous slowly, with much less and much less effect, and have been at last devoured up. and that they in no way fairly had a frontrunner, consistent with se, on condition that they have been a chain of smaller and better city states. One chief became Alexander the excellent, yet he became fairly Macedonian, no longer even fairly Greek. Nowhere close to the top of course.
