In the series, Gabrielle is said to have been born in the village of Potidaia/Potidaea. Potidaia-was an actual ancient Greek city, a colony of Corinth established around the 6th-century BC. In 356 BC, it was destroyed by Philip II of Macedon during warfare. Nearby cities were later established by both Cassander and Augustus. Potidaia's remains are in the peninsula of Pallene, itself attached to the larger peninsula of Chalkidiki, in the Greek department of Central Macedonia. See more »
The six years that Xena appeared on American television and then in international distribution was the most marvelous ride on the entertainment merry-go-round since "Wonder Woman" premiered in 1975, twenty years earlier. This show had camp, pathos, mystery, intrigue, intricate character development and the invention of a magnificent new world through which the viewer was able to judge and measure his or her own living situation. If you ever get a chance, at least take the time to watch either the entire first or the entire fourth seasons of Xena (which had the most developed plots). It is a show that actually changed the world into a better place and that can be said of only a few shows in history.
If you like "Xena" you might also like "Queen of Swords", "Wonder Woman", "Supergirl" (maybe....), "Chameleon 1,2, &3", "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" or "Andromeda". You may also want to watch the direct to video cartoon release "Hercules and Xena: the Animated Movie: the Battle for Mount Olympus".
