- Alexander The Great, a very notable historical figure, was born into the Macedonian Empire in July 356 BC, from Olympias, his mother, and King Phillip II of Macedon, as his father.
- At the age of 14, Alexander had been tutored by the Greek Philosopher Aristotle, who had mentored him for 3 years.
- Once his father, King Phillip the II, was assassinated in the year 336 BC, his son had taken his place as King of Macedon.
- Alexander had never lost a war. Not once. Like, never ever. Ever. Seriously.
- Like Julius Caesar, Alexander had earned his title because of his outstanding commissioning abilities, and astounding tactical skills.
- As before mentioned, Alexander was tutored by the Greek Philosopher, Aristotle, who had given him his intellectual wits.
- He had expanded his empire all through sections of Persia, Greece, Egypt and India, gathering one of the most powerful empires ever recorded in history.
- He would've made his dad proud... That is if he was still alive... And not like, dead.
- Most of the time, a leader has a set religion, or philosophy for the civilization, but Alexander had a different approach. An approach that would lead to one of the biggest revolutions in history.
- Instead of forcing a central belief system from just 1 civilization, he combined all of his Empire's belief systems. Egyptian, Persian, Indian, and Greek belief systems all blended into one belief, which he named Hellenism.
- Hellenism is extremely important. Without it, we wouldn't have such a diverse culture because nobody would have had such a large amount of diffused cultures, and exchanged ideas.
- And there would have been no Hellenism without Alexander.
As stated by Alexander himself,
"I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion."
