How many times did Optimus Prime die in the 1st ever series and film before all the new remakes?
I believe it was once in the movie and once in the show, I can't tell you anything about the seasons after the fourth English season because Japan took a different path when they decided to continue the series, technically, they're not cannon with the U.S. series.
he also died once in transformers armada but was ressurected by the minicons
Prime stands for a great leader. For example, before Optimus became a Prime, he was Orion Pax. Sentinel Prime was a leader before Optimus who taught him how to become a Prime. But later on Sentinel betrays Cybertron by siding with Megatron. Optimus was not born with the title of a Prime, he earned it.

In most of the cartoons, it was Peter Cullen. In Beast Wars and Energon it was Garry Chalk. Robots in Disguise was Neil Kaplan. David Kaye did the Optimus Prime from the Animated series. A few others were Robert Belgrade, Ron Hayden, and Eric Edwards. Peter Cullen is seen as the true voice of Optimus Prime, however.
