In 325 BC; he got shot with an arrow in the stomach by a member of the Mali tribe and almost died in the act of fighting. The King was careful because he would have starved if his soldiers starve. He wouldn’t drink if his soldiers didn’t drink. He would put his soldiers before him.
Alexander the Great had many superior accomplishes like, winning a lot of wars for Macedonia. His greatest accomplish was in early 326BC, conquering the world and besides that he had to defeat the Persian King Darius III. Darius kept running away from his rival, Alexander, but he finally caught up to him and killed him.
Alexander had great significant Incidents and Historical times. One was, he conquered the world. He also beat the Persian Empire with a smaller cavalry. One other thing is that the King led lots of wars and did not loose one.
The king died on June 10 323 B.C.. How did he die? He died from a mysterious illness that included poison. After two years his funeral was held. This was a vast funeral held in Memphis, Egypt. Later robbers or soldiers took his body or buried it by the king. His body wasn’t found.
Alexander May have faced troubles, but Alexander still conquered the world at a young age. He was brave and careful, led a great cavalry, but most of all, he ruled the world.
