Alexander

Alexander the Great was a king of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon and a member of the Argead dynasty. Born in Pella in 356 BCE, he succeeded his father Philip II to the throne at the age of 20. He spent most of his ruling years on an unprecedented military campaign through Asia and northeast Africa, and by the age of thirty, he had created one of the largest empires of the ancient world, stretching from Greece to northwestern India.
