The House of Ill Fame


Alexander remained silent for a second and then shouted, “Listen, O holy Jupiter, God of Fortune. I am satisfied that I am fated to be a world conqueror and people will remember me with respect. The rest is just immaterial to me. I do not want to know it, and as I do not want that it shall ever happen.”

Alexander then returned to his kingdom. History bears testimony to the fact that he fought a number of wards and won them. He conquered many lands, but could not live long. This World-Conqueror, who once expressed his sorrow that there were no more countries for him to subdue, died at an early age of thirty three. He died in a foreign land due to high fever caused by infected injuries. Pythia had correctly foretold his future.
