Question for you "experts" on this story..
What is the age difference supposed to be?

Was there any kind of Oedipal stuff.. I think I'm picturing that
their relationship would have been similar to Hamlet and his mommy.
That's just my image as of now.

Dear Spanish Flavour, Very Happy
Wow, thank you for providing this wonderful picture. I've looked forward to seeing their scene together and it looks great.
As Kevin says - "Nice One" and I agree.
MaryP. - I believe Olympias was probably only 15 to 18 years older than Alexander. Women married younger in those days and died younger, too! She probably lavished all her love and devotion on him, since Philip scorned her later on in their lives. She would have seen Alexander as her only hope for retaining her position as Queen.
It was survival of the fittest back then and both Alexander and Olympias were on shakey ground at the end of Philip's life, so they both relied on each other for survival and stability.
Also, they were both beautiful, weren't they - so c'est la vie!!!! Who knows...... Rolling Eyes

Magika,
Embarassed I meant love and devotion, maternally. I don't think there was anything sexual or illicit between them. Also, Olympias was a survivor in history and used her wiles to manipulate and I don't doubt that Alexander did likewise. And so, they realised that they needed each other. But they did love one another and were loyal to each other throughout time......

I didn't even mean "sexual" in the pure sense of the word by Oedipal.
It's just that there is sometimes I different relationship between mother and son when they are so close in age.

I figure she could have been as young as 13 or 14 when she had Alexander.. and even 15-18 isn't much of a difference.
About the same as Ashton and Demi!! Laughing

I think Olympia is made very young, she have to be older. If I didn't know that she is his mother, I would think she is his wife!

Alexander is noted as saying that his mother charged him awfully high rent for the nine months he spent in her womb. Olympias was probably about 18 when she married Philip, making her almost 20 years older than Alexander. Angelina Jolie is too young to play Alexander's mother, especially considering how annoying her contemporaries found her. Their relationship wasn't exactly Oedipal, but it was exceedingly close. They were obsessively loyal and loving.
