Alexander the Great

Parent Category: Ancient Greece
One of the most successful commanders of all time, Alexander the Great (356–323 BC) was the king of Macedonia and the creator of the largest empire in ancient history, from the Ionian Sea to the Himalayas.
Alexander wanted to fulfill a wish for Diogenes and asked him what  he desired.
"If I already wasn't Alexander, I would want to be Diogenes". To  which Diogenes answered: "If I already wasn't Diogenes, I would  want to be Diogenes".
He was defeated by the Indian king Porus at the Hydaspes River  in the Punjab in 326 BCE.  Early Greek historians and modern scholars have consistently  hidden this in their writings just to glorify Alexander as an  unbeaten hero. He of course died of illness or was  assassinated.

No, he was a greek king before the roman times.
Alexander the Great loved learning, and he read his favorite book over and over every night. Now you a probably thinking that he was the geeky kind. But before you say that, he was a good athlete too! He was very good at sword fighting and other competative sports.

First he inspired people he conquered by slowly incouraging them to at least look upon what he was going to say and building temples in there city of roman gods, but he did this in a kind way, and he wanted to make peace with them.

He left no clear heir and his generals split it up amongst themselves, creating what we now call the Hellenistic Kingdoms, which fought amongst each other.
It's simple really, he never conquered it.

Alexander wanted to continue east of India but his soldiers were tired of the long campaign (12 years) and wanted to come home.
well he had a lot of achievements that he accomplished one of them is that he built a huge empire. another accomplishment was that he became king in ancient Greece. also he tamed a wild horse when no one can and he took off to war. That's what made ancient Greece consider him a hero.
