Member since 27/11/2013

Upon my father Philip's death, I inherited a strong kingdom and an experienced army. In 334 BC, I invaded the Achaemenid empire, ruled Asia Minor, and began a series of campaigns that lasted ten years. I broke the power of Persia in a series of decisive battles, most notably the battles of Issus and Gaugamela. I subsequently overthrew the Persian King Darius III and conquered the entirety of the Persian Empire. At that point, my empire stretched from the Adriatic Sea to the Indus River. Seeking to reach the ends of the world and the Great Outer Sea, I invaded India in 326 BC, but was eventually forced to turn back at the demand of my troops. I died in Babylon in 323 BC, without executing a series of planned campaigns that would have begun with an invasion of Arabia. In the years following my death, a series of civil wars tore his empire apart, resulting in several states ruled by the Diadochi, my surviving generals and heirs.
