Alexander the Great made many accomplishments. He was an unusual ruler, though. My reasoning for that would be because when he overtook Persia, he let them keep their religion, culture, and even let their officials keep leading them as long as they answered to him. He was also highly underestimated by leaders from other regions. They though that he was weak and foolish and would not be able to lead the Macedonians to victory. Despite the fact that other leaders though he was young and stupid, Alexander was very, very smart, kind, and fair.
Alexander the Great wanted a horse named Bucephalus. His father doubted that even he would be able to obtain the horse, but he challenged Alexander that if he was able to ride the horse, he would be allowed to keep it. Alexander noticed that the horse freaked out when it saw its own shadow, so he turned the horse toward the sun and got to keep his horse, which was his most beloved of all.
Alexander The Great was a very important part of Greek history. He added Greeek culture onto pre-existing cultures, therefore making them the beginning of the Hellenistic Era.
aAlexander also greatly improved the way that the Macedonians used their spears. He extended them to 18 feet so that they had a better success rate against the Calvary. He had the men at the front of the Hypaspist holding their spears out in front of them so as to harm anyone or anything that confronted it.
Alexander the Great had three wives, Roxana, Stateira II, and Parysatis II. He married the Persian leader's daughter to seal that he was now the ruler.
Alexander the Great died of a nasty case of Malaria at the young age of 33. Although he was mourned for, many of his officials argued over who was to be leader. This tore apart his empire into 3 separate regions, all led by different generals.
