Alexander the Great – the boy solider who conquered the world. From taming a horse to killing a wild boar, Prince Alexander’s childhood adventures helped him to become king of Macedon at the age of 20. The ambitious young king went on to conquer
an incredible amount of land during his reign, traveling far into Asia, to make his mark on a world where everyone would come
to know his name.
A sagacious ruler and a volatile, often violent commander, a sensuous youth and a paradigm of chastity,
Alexander the Great of Macedonia remains one of the most fascinating and contradictory figures in world history.
Son of King Philip and the tempestuous Queen Olympia, educated by Aristotle himself, a swift succession of military victories gave him an empire that extended from Greece to India. From his first conquest in northern Greece at the age of sixteen,
to a swift succession of victories over Macedonia, Egypt, Persia, and Asia, Alexander possessed almost inhuman energy
and hubris that defied Zeus himself, until his death at the age of thirty-two.
Alexander the Great is an epic history of a man who became one of the most heralded rulers and despised geniuses of all time.
