I don't know what to make of this blog entry...it is supposedly a joke Confused and there was also a supposed fake news story about Alexander's tomb being found in Macedonia.....
excerpt...
Quote:
Alexander III of Macedon (356 BC 323 BC), on the other hand, has no such luck national TV Kanal 5 this Sunday descended to a new level of Hades when it literally raised his spirit in a so-called news item [MKD] about a historian who went to Florida with a camera crew to seek the services of an allegedly famous medium to provide contact with his (sic!) ancestors. In the video, the spiritualist claims that a young man dressed in lion's skin is standing in the room, saying he went to Persia not for conquest but to seek cultural exchange, and would like to know more about the contemporary Macedonian linguistics.

There is a possibility of a set up, but still, the thought that Alexander could be there..!
The use of the word Tzar I found odd though, (it derives from Caesar doesn't it) and I couldn't help wondering why he was dressed as Hercules.
Its not the first time someone has claimed this though, I remember reading somewhere that Alexander was not very nice... Rolling Eyes
