Who was Alexander the Great?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Who was Alexander the Great?       
Who was Alexander the Great? Alexander was a king of Macedonia, a poor country that needed to expand in order to survive. Although he was only 20 when he became king, Alexander rapidly conquered Greece. He then led his armies against the mighty Persian Empire, and within three years he had conquered it too.

He now ruled an empire extending from Egypt and the Mediterranean coast all the way into India. Alexander developed various methods of warfare, such as siege engines, that were to be used for hundreds of years.

He introduced Greek methods of thinking and religion into his empire, and divided it into a series of small kingdoms under his own authority. He was only 32 when he died at Alexandria, in Egypt.
