Alexander III of Macedon, known as Alexander the Great, was a king of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon. He succeeded his father Philip II to the throne at the age of twenty and spent most of his ruling years on an extensive military campaign through Asia and north east Africa, creating one of the largest empires of the ancient world by thirty years of age. It stretched from Greece to north western India. Alexander was undefeated in battle and is considered one of the most successful military commanders throughout history.
