    Alexander the Great

    by AndyRG Updated Jun 2, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: His sister gave her name to the city, his statue reminds the glorious history of Macedonia. Alexander (356-323 BC) was just 20 years old when his father, Philip, died (in 336 BC, in Aiges-Vergina). Then, his son became the king of Macedonia.
    In 334 BC, he managed to win Persae in 3 different fights and so Alexander succeeded to arrive even in India, where he died at the age of 33.
    He has been characterized as the best commander in history, one of the most important personalities all over the centuries...
