Alexander the Great was arguably the most extraordinary warrior of all time. Straddling his world like a colossus, his military conquests remain unrivalled to this very day. By age 20, he was crowned king. By 30, his rule would stretch from Greece to Persia and the distant Himalayas. He brought East and West together in the mightiest conquest the world has ever known. But much of the conqueror’s awe-inspiring legacy remains shrouded in mystery. With no eyewitness accounts and just a handful of second and third-hand reports to go on, the character of Alexander remains an enigma. Only 32 when he died, there is still the widest disagreement about his true nature and motive. Was he a vindictive, bloodthirsty conqueror or an idealist who brought Greek culture to distant lands? Did he, a pupil of Aristotle, try to live like his Greek heroes in the Iliad, or was he an insecure son trying to out-do his father at every step – even proclaiming himself a god? Was Alexander an inspirational general or a paranoid tyrant? In Alexander the Great: the Man Behind the Myth, we go on a quest to find the real Alexander and examine what moulded his actions and pushed him ever onward. Part hero, part tyrant, part demon, part godlike figure, he still fascinates us more than 2,000 years after his death. His deeds have never been surpassed, but we ask if, in the end, through fearing no mortal, Alexander become his own worst enemy?
