Asked in Ancient History
Why did Alexander's empire not last after his death?
Alexander had no clear heir or successor. He had a handicapped brother and an unborn child to his Persian wife Roxane. It was arranged that when the child was born, the brother and child would jointly take on the rulership. However it didn't happen. Alexander's generals had been given provinces to govern, and these now took control and entered into war against each other. After the first war, the settlement was: Antipater - European Greece - and regent of the Empire, with under his control king Arrhideus and the boy-king Alexander IV in Macedon. Antigonus - Phrygia, Lycia, and Pamphylia and Lycaonia. Ptolemy - Egypt Lysimachus - Thrace Seleucus - Babylonia Peithon - Media Antigenes - Susiana After several more wars of succession and the murders of the two kings, the succession settled to: Cassander - European Greece Ptolemy - Egypt Antigonis - Asia Minor Seleucis - Syria and Mesopotamia. The governors took the title of kings, and ruled their separate kingdoms (known as the Hellenistic kingdoms) and continued sporadically fighting each other. These kingdoms were progressively absorbed into the Roman empire in the 2nd and 1st Centuries BCE.
