Anaxandridas was a son of Leon of Sparta and also his successor. It is not known who Anaxandridas' mother is. His first wife was also his niece.
Having a seemingly infertile wife whom he would not divorce, the ephors made him marry a second wife, who born him a son, Cleomenes I. Sons that came out of his relationship with his first wife were Dorieus (father of Euryanas), famous Leonidas I, and Cleombrotus.
Several sayings are ascribed to him, according to Plutarch.
