    Alexander the Great was said to be the youngest and most brilliant conquerors of all time. Beginning his string of victories at 16 and dying at the age of 32-33 years old. A lot achieved in a mere 16 years.
    He was said to never be defeated only thing that stopped this incredible genius was the will of his own men and death. Some said it was Malaria or poison that took his life, i know not.
    Many QUESTIONS revolve;
    I figure here is a good enough place as any for a conversation.
    Instead of diadochi, on Alexander's death bed he said kraterus or something like it, meaning strongest. He had a General Craterus thats similar to that word ..
    What if he was trying to put Craterus in Charge? Untill Alexander's own kids grew to take charge? How would that seem to have ended up?
    What would have happened if Alexander lived another 30+ years? Would he have built up the empire or battled more? Why didnt he take Macedonian wives? Or go after Rome or north towards Current day Russia? Was Alexander Bisexual?
    Many questions to ask so join in and reply.. lets discuss

    theory is that his successors willfully or erroneously misheard “tôi Kraterôi” — “to Craterus”, the general leading his Macedonian troops home and newly entrusted with the regency of Macedonia.
    Imagine the Hellenic culture if it would have been spread across a wider area of the world during the classical period and then Rome's ascendancy may have been delayed or may not have happened at all. And the whole world could be changed and altered. Would we still be the same today or what changes would you think we would have?
