Biography

More formaly Alexander III of Macedon, king of ancient Macedonia. After his father Philip II of Macedon had united the divided and war-torn states of Greece, Alexander conquered Persia, Egypt and several other kingdoms, until the borders of India. Conquests and the spread of Greek culture and the mixture of Greek culture with more Eastern culture, led to the Hellenic period of several continents. After twelve years of constant military campaigning, Alexander died, probably of malaria or typhoid fever. Alexander himself lived on in history and myth of both Greek and non-Greek peoples. Already in his lifetime, and especially after his death, his exploits inspired a literary tradition in which he appears as a towering legendary hero in the story of Achilles.
