Alexander The Great
Macedonia: Greatest Conqueror in History
Born: 356 B.C. Died: 323 B.C.

Alexander was the son of King Philip II of Macedonia. After the death of his father, he succeeded to the throne of Macedonia in 336 B.C. He then suppressed all revolts against him. After establishing his unchallenged supremacy in Greece, Alexander now dreamt of becoming the ruler of the world. For this purpose he raised a huge army and equipped it with the best weapons and moved eastwards on his journey of conquests in 334 B.C. By his extraordinary leadership and with the help of his able army, he overran the whole of Asia Minor, Mediterranean territories and Phoenicia and reached the valley of Nile. He conquered Egypt and founded the city of Alexandria 332 B.C. After conquering Egypt, Alexander marched towards Persian Empire. At Arabela, Alexander completely routed the Persian army under Darius III.After overrunning Bactria across the Hindu Kush in May a327 B.C., Alexander marched towards India. In the summer of 326 B.C. Alexander’s armies had reached the banks of river Indus. The ruler of Taxila, Ambi and many other smaller rulers welcomed Alexander and made friendship with him, but the ruler of lthe kingdom between Jhelum and Chenab, Porus, refused to submit to a foreign invader. A battla was then fought between Porus and Alexander. But he was defeated. Alexander was very much impressed by his bravery and returned his kingdom to him. In August 326 B.C., he crossed the river Ravi and conquered all the territories in the east of it. Alexander was now eager to bring the mighty and prosperous kingdom of Magadha under his control but his troops were tired and homesick, so Alexander decided to retreat.
