History meme: 3 men - ALEXANDER THE GREAT was born in Pella, the ancient capital of Macedonia in July 356 BC to Philip II of Macedon and his wife Olympias. Alexander was educated by the philosopher Aristotle. After his father’s assassination in 336 BC Alexander inherited a powerful yet volatile kingdom. He quickly dealt with his enemies at home and reasserted Macedonian power within Greece. He then set out to conquer the massive Persian Empire. Against overwhelming odds, he led his army to victories across the Persian territories of Asia Minor, Syria and Egypt without suffering a single defeat. His greatest victory was at the Battle of Gaugamela, in what is now northern Iraq, in 331 BC. The young king of Macedonia, leader of the Greeks, overlord of Asia Minor and pharaoh of Egypt became ‘great king’ of Persia at the age of 25. Over the next eight years Alexander led his army a further 11,000 miles, founding over 70 cities and creating an empire that stretched across three continents and covered around two million square miles. Alexander’s empire was united by a common Greek language and culture, while he himself adopted foreign customs in order to rule his millions of ethnically diverse subjects. Alexander was acknowledged as a military genius who always led by example, although his belief in his own indestructibility meant he was often reckless with his own life and those of his soldiers; he introduced the custom of proskynesis which refers to the traditional Persian act of bowing or prostrating oneself before a person of higher social rank (the adoration which is due to a God alone). The fact that his army only refused to follow him once in 13 years of a reign during which there was constant fighting, indicates the loyalty he inspired. He died of a fever in Babylon in June 323 BC.
