“I do not fear an army of lions, if they are led by a lamb. I do fear an army of sheep, if they are led by a lion.”
Alexander the Great (356 BCE to 323 BCE)
Alexander the Great, also known as Alexander III or Alexander of Macedonia, king of Macedonia (336-323 BCE), who overthrew the Persian empire, carried Macedonian arms to India, and laid the foundations for the Hellenistic world of territorial kingdoms. Already in his lifetime the subject of fabulous stories, he later became the hero of a full-scale legend bearing only the sketchiest resemblance to his historical career.
