📜 History of National Alexandra Day
The Macedonian kingdom of the ancient Greeks was controlled by Alexander the Great. Even after 2,400 years have passed, Alexander is still regarded by many historians as the greatest military leader. After conquering the entire Persian Empire and establishing a new Hellenistic (Greek) culture over the current Middle East, parts of India and Asia, and Egypt, Alexander spent twelve years extending his realm to the Himalayas in the east. Alexander the Great, who some claim never lost a battle, tragically died at the age of 33 from poisoning. What else he would have accomplished if he had continued is left to speculation. Because of how famous his stories were in ancient times, Roman emperors who came after him wanted to be like him or leave legacies like his.
The Greek word for “defending mankind” is the source of the name Alexander. Stories of Alexander the Great’s renowned military campaigns were told repeatedly from antiquity through the middle ages and into modern times. This has helped the moniker endure across the Western world. That this name has so many variations is hardly surprising.
