Not all of Alexanders days after that where unhappy. In 327bc Alexander and his troops had captured a fortress at a place called Sogdian Rock.
Alexander also met a girl called Roxana. Roxana was the daughter of the local ruler of the time. They ended up marrying in what the Greeks call India (modern day Pakistan). Alexander took two additional wives in addition to Roxana, who he had married in Asia. One was Barsine, daughter of Darius III, and another called Arrian identified as Parysatis. Roxana likely did not take kindly to his new wives and, after Alexander’s death, she may have killed them first.
IN 323bc Alexander was in Babylon preparing his troops for Arabia when he caught a flue and died. This achievement was weird because it was the first of its kind.
Perhaps Alexander's greatest legacy was finding many great cities and spreading the Greek culture wherever he went. Alexandria, in Egypt, is a city today of more than 4 and a half million people. To conclude, Greek language, religion and culture were spread throughout the Middle East and used for centuries even after the death of Alexander the great. This is what we should call amazing.
