I heard he was from Hoteponia
Nope Greek, you maybe thinking of Hannibal
He got shot in the chest climbing the city wall at Multan, during the siege. He likely died as a result of his alcoholism combined with that injury which almost killed him on that day. Its not hard to imagine that somebody would die a year later after suffering a wound like that, especially when they're an alcoholic on top and didn't exactly rest up to heal
Idk breh. Most depictions of Alex in ancient times showed as blonde haired and blue eyed.
Plutarch on Alexander the Great's Appearance:
"Whereas he was of a fair colour, as they say, and his fairness passed into ruddiness on his breast particularly, and in his face." So it appears Alexander was a blond
Defeated by the indians.
Ghenghis Khan would never
Timur gave them that work tho
Well that was just plain unnecessary sir
Then had a nerve to march through a desert to go back to Persia when he could've easily took a boat or walked along the sea
Get shot with an arrow, don't heal up and then walk through a scorching desert brehs
Parmenion and Philotas
The messed up part is Parmenion was his father's OG homie, and held him down militarily, overseeing Alexander's left flank in most of his historical battles.
Yet when it came time, he still got him out of the paint. And his son like you said. Too bad he didn't realize Cassander was the one he needed to be watching.
Alexander also killed Aristotle's nephew (Aristotle was supposed to be his mentor/OG) because he kept talking about Greeks being real nikkas compared to Macedonians
That's why I find it weird that people consider Alexander Greek. It's rewriting history. In real life, not being Greek (but lowkey wanting their acceptance) is what drove him and his father Phillip. If you call Macedonians Greek, you might as well call Albanians (which was Illyria/Epirus back then) Greek.
Dead ass....you can write a Game of Thrones style show about Alexander and his generals. Ptolemy, Cassander, Antigonus, and Seleucus all got extra busy and extra grimey after dude died
A fellow patron of history
you right about Cassander too, breh killed Alexander’s young son. I feel like Alex was mentally done after Hephaestion’s death.
I don’t think Alex ever forgave Parmenion for having to turn back and rescue him and the left flank when Alex was so close to capturing/killing Darius.
And moreover, Alexander made it a point to exterminate Greek cities. What he did to places like Thebes and Chios, not to mention what he did to Greek cities that surrendered without resistance. To those that surrendered he forced the men to join his army, but as soon as he died they completely abandoned the Macedonian empire. They followed him only because they feared him, once he died there was nothing to fear anymore and they just wanted to go back home
The Greeks of today glorify a guy who their ancestors universally hated
The honorable John Henrick Clark polishing gems first dropped by the great JA Rogers and the immigrants of the coli are turning their noses up.
I know, I know. There a country called Macedonia, look on a map

Hey whatever happened....the muhfukka was a legend in his 20s....so it is what it is
