Alexander the Great was Greek. Macedonia was an ancient Greek kingdom in the northern Greek peninsula and is now a province of modern Greece. Epirus is still the north-west state in Greece. Alexander and his father were descendants of the Argead dynasty which originate from Argos in southern Greece while his mother descendant from the Molossians, the tribe of Achilles. Alexander significantly exposed the vast areas that he conquered to Greek civilization and influence.
