90% of the known world by the age of 25, Alexander the
Great led his armies through 22,000 miles of sieges
and conquests in just eight years. Coming out of tiny
Macedonia, Alexander led his armies against the mighty
Persian Empire, drove west to Egypt, and finally made
his way east to India. This biographical epic follows
the life of Alexander the Great who conquered the whole
then known world and spreaded greek civilization to
the most far off places. Alexander became king of Macedonia
(and Greece at general) at a very young age, after the
assassination of his father Philip who had previously
united for the first time all of Greece under his belt.
Alexander was educated by the great philosopher Aristotle
who was brought from Athens for this particular reason.
The new king was also very ambitious; he couldn't stop
thinking about the Persian invasion on Greece almost
150 years before and his desire to get revenge was constantly
growing. To that end, he started gathering an army to
invade Asia; his first goal was to liberate the greek
cities of Minor Asia's coast and his second to bring
down the vast Persian Empire, against all odds.

great sandles too.
