Early life

Alexander the Great, also known as Alexander III or Alexander of Macedonia, was the king of Macedonia from 336 to 323 BCE. He overthrew the Persian empire, took Macedonian arms to India, and set the foundations for the Hellenistic world of territorial kingdoms. He was born in 356 BCE in Pella, Macedonia, and died in Babylon, Iraq, on June 13, 323 BCE. In his lifetime, he was already the subject of fantastic stories. Later, he became the hero of a full-scale legend that only vaguely resembled his real life.

Childhood and Education

Pella is the capital of the Kingdom of Macedon. Alexander was born on the sixth day of the ancient Greek month Hekatombaion, which may have been 20 July 356 BC or 20 July 356 AD. He was the son of King Philip II and his fourth wife Olympias, daughter of King Neoptolemus I, the king of Epirus. He was the son of Olympias and Philip II. Olympias was Philip’s most important wife for a while, likely because she gave birth to Alexander. Philip had seven or eight wives. At the start of his life when he was very young, Alexander was raised by a nurse named Lanike. Lanike is the sister of Alexander’s future general, Cleitus the Black. As he grew up, Alexander was taught by strict Leonidas, a relative of his mother. He also learned from Lysimachus of Acarnania.

Education

Isocrates and Speusippus were two of the people Philip looked at when he was looking for a tutor for Alexander when he was 13. Speusippus said he would resign from the Academy’s stewardship if he took the job. In the end, Philip chose Aristotle and used the Temple of the Nymphs at Mieza as a classroom for Aristotle to study in. Aristotle’s home town of Stageira, which Philip had destroyed, would be rebuilt by Philip in exchange for Alexander’s help teaching him. Philip would buy slaves and free them or pardon people who had been exiled.

When Alexander and the children of Macedonian nobles, like Ptolemy, Hephaistion, and Cassander, went to Mieza, it was like going to school. As time went on, many of these students became close friends and future generals for him. They are called the “Companions.” It was Aristotle’s job to teach Alexander and his friends everything from medicine to morals to religion to logic to art. Under the guidance of Aristotle, Alexander became a big fan of the works of Homer, especially the Iliad. Aristotle gave him an annotated copy of the book, which Alexander took with him on his campaigns. Alexander was also friends with Persian exiles who lived at the Macedonian court. Philip II helped them for a long time as they fought against Artaxerxes III.

The King of Macedon 

Alexander started his reign by getting rid of people who could be a threat to the throne. He had his cousin, the former Amyntas IV, put to death. [50] As well, he killed two Macedonian princes from the region of Lyncestis. He spared Alexander Lyncestes, who was from the same region. Olympias killed Cleopatra Eurydice and her daughter, Europa, who was born to Olympias and Philip and was his wife. When Alexander found out about this, he was angry. It was also Alexander’s order to kill Attalus, who was in charge of the army’s first line of defence in Asia Minor and the uncle of Cleopatra.

The defeat of the Persian Empire

In 334 B.C., Alexander set out to conquer the Persian Empire, which had lost power but was still a huge thing. This is how it worked: Alexander had a small army of fewer than 40,000 men, mostly Macedonians who were very loyal to him. It was across the Aegean Sea in Asia Minor that Persia was. He went there (modern-day Turkey). In the end, after three years of war and three important battles, Alexander crushed the Persian armies at the Tigris River. He then conquered the mighty Persian Empire, which included the legendary city of Babylon.

Death

The death of Alexander the Great and other events that happened after have been the subject of debates. Between the evening of June 10 and the evening of June 11, 323 BC, Alexander died in the palace of Nebuchadnezzar II in Babylon. He was 32 years old. Other people think Alexander either died of malaria or was poisoned. Other retrodiagnoses include diseases that aren’t caused by bugs. It’s possible Alexander died of malaria because he caught it two weeks before his death when he went sailing in the marshes to look at flood defences, says author Andrew Chugg. One ancient account says that it took two years to plan and build a funerary cart for Alexander’s body to be taken out of Babylon. It isn’t clear how the body was kept for about two years before it was moved from Babylon. In 1889, E. A. Wallis Budge said that the body was put in a vat of honey. Plutarch said that Egyptian embalmers took care of the body.en his famous equation E=mc 2 was finally demonstrated in the most awesome and terrifying way by using the bomb to destroy Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945. For a long time he could only utter “Horrible, horrible.”
