Alexander the Great passed away on June 13
In 323 BC, Alexander III of Macedon, known as Alexander the Great, died in Babylon. He was one of the greatest military leaders in world history. His legendary personality has been an inspiration to writers, poets and various artists for centuries. Alexander the Great was the Macedonian king. He ruled from 336 BC to 323 BC. He belonged to the Argiad dynasty. He conquered the great Persian Empire as the Macedonian king and hegemon of the Greeks. Alexander the Great came to India with his army. After Alexander’s death at the age of 33, his great empire fell apart in the wars of his generals. The generals were his successors and were called “diados”.
Alexander the Great was called the Great, even though he was cursed in the eyes of the Zarathustra. He overthrew their state with conquests. He then destroyed the magnificent city of Persepolis and killed many Zarathustra priests. His generals gathered on Alexander’s deathbed with the desire to find out to whom Alexander would leave his empire. Historical records and legends say that Alexander then reportedly declared, “To the strongest of you.” He also predicted a bad future for his empire. Alexander’s prediction came true. There were conflicts and wars among his heirs. His only legitimate heir was born a few months after Alexander’s death — Alexander Iv who was killed shortly afterwards while still a child.
