Aristotle tutoring Alexander

Alexander III ( 356 BC – 10 June 323 BC) was the Ruler of Macedon, and creator of an empire that included Greece, Persia, Egypt, and many regions beyond them; commonly known as Alexander the Great. He was undefeated in battle and is considered one of history’s most successful military commanders. During his youth, Alexander was tutored by the philosopher Aristotle until the age of 16. Seeking to reach the “ends of the world and the Great Outer Sea”, he invaded India in 326 BC, but was eventually forced to turn back at the demand of his troops. Alexander died in Babylon in 323 BC.

  4. Always wonder what the world would have been like if he didn’t die. Would he have moved on a conquered even more? Can you imagine studying under Aristotle? Wish I could go back in time and meet Aristotle. Alexander too so I can ask him what his world conquering plans are too.
