This is so weird. Alexander never fought for the freedom of the Greeks; in fact, most Greeks did not want his hegemony.
It could be that those words there were pure and simple propaganda, but I stil ...

Strategically, his so-called 'last plans' did not make much sense. If they were real, they were meant to fulfill only Alexander's perpetual pothos to discover the unknown. I assume that the fleet woul ...

Top 5 (the 5th being my personal opinion) are:
1-Alexander III
2-Genghis Khan
3-Napoleon Bonaparte
4-C. Julius Caesar
5-a tie between Manuel Comnenus, Belisarius, and Alexander Nevski

Ah c'mon vickie don't be mad, I was only teasing. The trailer is good but I have been fooled by so many trailers before (Troy most of all; they ruined that movie!). I have liked hearing stories and re ...

OK, it wasn't that great. It sounded like the actors were just yelling and nothing else.

There were a few things that simply didn't match up int that set report. It says Antigonus was injured in his only eye - but, correctmy if I'm wrong, didn't Alexander left Antigonus behind in Phrygia ...

I have seen the statue of Alexander wearing that Beotian-style helmet too you wrote. I agree that the evidence for the lion-head helmet is shaky, but then again whatever kind of helmet they reconstruc ...

It was on a Yanky channel (ABC I think). In the beginning I thought I was imagining it - but when I realised what it was, it left me breathless. I swear ladies and gentlemen, I swear it on my own two ...

Good news everyone. I saw a completely new trailer on TV just like 5 minutes ago. Olympias was talking (you can achieve anything, I think she said) and there was clips of the phalanx claping their sar ...
