Persia was not weak. It's leadership was weak. Had the Persians relied on their superior mobility and kept from the set-peice battle they would have won just like the Parthains against Crassus at Carr ...

Hmm. He's supposed to have white blaze on his muzzle, and I think we would have been much smaller than that. It's a well known fact Persian horses were tanks compared to the smaller Macedonian and The ...

Phillip's eye injury was a lot worse than that. But I guess that's the best the makeup department can do, short of ripping his eye out and some bone. ROFL.

But that's all top stuff.

I believe Achilles is described in homer with blonde hair. Also Rameses the Great died his hair blonde (as evidenced by his mummy) yet he was of Afro-Hamitic stock.

Also, blonde is a recessive gene ...

It really depends on how one judges the two men.

I think Plutarch mentions Julius Caesar visiting the tomb in Alexandria when he was there, and I'm sure as everyone knows Caesar wept there because he feared he could never be as great as Alex.

Amen brother. It is damn cool looking. I've heard Pyrrus of Epirus wore one to identify himself with Alex. He even had the cheekpeices cut to the shape of ram's horns which I believe were identifiers ...

Olympias was born in 375 BC. Alexander was born June 356 BC. So Olympias would have been around 19 years old when Alexander was born.
