The was once a wild horse running frantically around Alexander's town's marketplace, and Alexander wanted it. Alexander found that every time the horse saw it's shadow, it would run wildly so, he turned the horse to the sun, where he wouldn't see his shadow, and rode away. This then became his horse, Bucephalus, he rode into battle on him and named cities after this horse, until he died. This then showed the townspeople what a clever young man he was.
Make sure he's facing the sun...
At his sister's wedding celebration, Alexander's father was killed by one of his body guards, which left Alexander as king of Macedonia.
Oh my gawd
Alexander conquered land all over the world. He expanded his empire throughout Greece, Egypt, and Persia.
You may keep your culture, but your leader will answer to me.
This is an amazing idea to draw your heroes and gods in this form!
As Alexander conquered lands, he ruled differently. He let the lands keep their culture and told their leaders to report to him. He even adopted some cultural traditions such as this Egyptian painting style.
While Alexander wanted to expand his empire further, his army refused to go on with him. On his way back to Macedonia, Alexander stopped in Babylon. While he was there, he becamevery ill and passed away.
Must... survive...to lead... my people...
Without the constant conquering of Alexander the Great, all of the areas of his empire divided back into individual regions.
