    Alexander III of Macedon (20/21 July 356 – 10/11 June 323 BC), commonly known as Alexander the Great, was a king of //Macedon//, a state in the north eastern region of //Greece//, and by the age of thirty was the creator of one of the largest empires in //ancient history//, stretching from the //Ionian sea// to the //Himalaya//. He was undefeated in battle and is considered one of the most successful commanders of all time.[1] Born in //Pella// in 356 BC, Alexander was tutored by the famed philosopher //Aristotle//. In 336 BC he succeeded his father //Philip II of Macedon// to the throne after Philip was assassinated. In 334 BC he invaded Persian-ruled //Asia Minor// and began a //series of campaigns// lasting ten years. Alexander broke the power of Persia in a series of decisive battles, most notably the battles of //Issus// and //Gaugamela//. Subsequently he overthrew the Persian king //Darius III// and conquered the entirety of the //Persian Empire//.i[›] The //Macedonian Empire// now stretched from the //Adriatic sea// to the //Indus River//. Although he is mostly remembered for his vast conquests, Alexander's lasting legacy was not his reign, but the cultural diffusion his conquests engendered.
