Transcript

  • 1. Alexander the Great
    By,
    Tiffany Allen
    Prof Michael Arguello
    History 140
  • 2. Destined for Glory
    Alexander inherited from his father, Phillip II, King of Macedonia, a large empire. He would go on to attack the Persians, for revenge against them for Xerxes’ attack on the Acropolis in Athens1.
  • 3. Great Achievements
    Alexander conquered much of the Persian empire in his quests, but left them to live their lives almost as they had before. He used satraps, or defenders of power, to watch over their domains and keep law and order1. In this way, their way of life was not drastically upset, thus less unhappiness and revolt.
  • 4. The end of the Empire
    At the end of Alexander’s life his empire was already beginning to crumble. His troops were mutinying, Greek settlers in Bactria were rioting and in Greece itself, there was a war beginning1. After his death, his empire was divided up and each of the weaker, divided domains would eventually be conquered by the Roman Empire1.
