Alexander the Great Quotes

In this blog, we will look at Alexander The Great quotes.

Alexander The Great was a great general who conquered many of the worlds’ most powerful nations. He was born in 356 BC and died in 323 BC.

His father Philip II of Macedon was one of the most prominent heroes in Greek history, but his mother Olympias had been married to another man before she married Philip. Alexander’s half-brothers were involved in a power struggle for the throne and when Alexander became king, he had to choose between them. He chose the group that wanted him to be king and they fought for his crown until he defeated them all and became king himself.

Alexander was a brilliant military strategist who led an army across Asia Minor (modern Turkey) together with his friend Hephaistion, son of Amyntas and half-brother of Alexander the Great. He was killed in battle at the Battle of Gaugamela in 334 BC, during which Hephaistion was captured. Alexander then appointed his brother-in-law, Roxane’s son Arrhidaeus as king and general (you can learn more about this interesting family history here)R oxane was also the daughter of King Agathocles and Queen Antigone (a mother of Alexander the Great), and wife of Arrhidaeus.Roxane’s son, Alexander was a great warrior, known as “the great”, who fought at Gaugamela in 334 BC.
