Decent Essays
Alexander the Great King Alexander of Macedonia was considered one of the greatest military leaders and most powerful rulers of all history, earning his nickname, Alexander the Great. Alexander seemed to have everything at a young age. He was Cavalry commander at eighteen. When he was twenty, his dad died and he became king. By twenty-six he conquered the Persian Empire and after that he explored the Indian frontier at thirty. Sadly, with all these young accomplishments, he died at the age of thirty-two from malaria. Alexander’s talents showed through at a very young age. When he was twelve, he broke a seemingly unbreakable stallion, Bucephalus. Before this, the stallion was unable to be ridden and injured every man who tried to train him.
