I think Alexander the Great is on the POD list due to his great army, leadership and conquering the four corners of the world. I think Alexander should be ranked at number 6 or 7 due to him conquering almost the whole world and having one of the biggest army in the whole world.



Alexander The Great



Alexander and his army in battle with the Persians

In 334 B.C. Alexander went to Troy in spring and first faced king Darius's forces, which were defeated swiftly. By fall Alexander's army made it to the Southern Coast of the Asia Minor to Gordium. in the summer of 333 Alexander and Darius fought once again, but Alexander was outnumbered. He used his flaire for military stragities and used formulations that defeated Darius once again. in November of 333 B.C. Alexander declared himself king of Persia after capturing Darius and making him a fugative. Next he went to conquer Egypt. Fortunatly Egypt fell wiwthout resitance. In 331 B.C. Alexander made the city Alexandrea in Egypt. Later that year he defeated the Persians the battle of Guagemela, he later became known as " King of the four corners of the world". His next conquest was Eastern Iran, where he created some Macedonian colonies. In 327 B.C. Alexander seized the fortress of the Aramazes. After capturing prince Oxyartes, he married his daughter Roxhana. In 328 B.C., Alexander deafeted King Porus' armies in Northern India. Findng himsef impressed by Porus, Alexander earned his trust and forgiveness. In 325 B.C., Alexander and his army trugded north along the Persian Gulf, where many fell prey to illness, injury and death. In 324 B.C., Alexander reached the city of Susa. To recruit more soldiers, Alexander required Macedonian men to marry Persian princesses. After Alexander managed to recruit thousands of Persian soldiers, he dismissed many existing Macedonian soldiers.

Alexander the Great was born on July 20 356 B.C. near the Pella region in Macedonia. Alexander took the throne at age 19. After his father's death, he took the macedonian army and led them into a fight with the Chaeroneans and won. After that he led his army into Thebes, A greek city-state. Alexander arrived so fast, that Thebes could not get their defences or their allies. Alexander hoped the destruction of Thebes would serve as a warning sign to other city-states, and it worked. The oher Greek city-states, including Athens, chose to pledge their allegance to the Macedonian Empire or opted to remain neutral.

With this Soldiers Macedonian were enraged. They spoke critacally about Alexander's new troops and condemned him for adooting Persian customs and manners. He appeased the Macedonian soldiers by killing 13 Persian military leaders. While considering the conquests of Carthage and Rome Alexander the Great died of malaria in Babylon, Persia on June 13th 323 B.C., when he was just 32 years old. His wife Roxhana gave birth to his first son a few months later. After Alexander died, his empire collapsed and the nations within battled for power.
