This guy was a god 🙌🏾💪🏾
The video is very enjoyable yet, a classic case of viewing history through the western lens. For example, there is no mention of "King Porus" in indian history perhaps during the harappan era he might have been a chieftain of some sorts. A cultural shift is inevitable when a foreign power captures a place, Just like the speaker mentioned "Alexander started wearing superior quality persian clothes etc" Well, the fact of the matter is at that point in time India was a major economic and trade superpower exporting clothes, spices, crops, jewels etc. Much of "persian" clothes etc were these very exported items. And it continued to be that till the time Britishers colonised, India's contribution to the world gdp was around 20%. Anyways, "the edge of the world' as he says was known to be the basin of Saraswati river which flowed violently and profusely back around Alexander's period. One can still see the basin of the river after 2000 years on google maps around sindh area. History is blotted and tarnished yo, its always told from the perspective of someone to better suit the narrative, the more you read the more you will learn.
Excuse me, indian cavalries?
why did sparta not join the league?
@FatBoiBrian coudlent they invade sparta than?
it most likely viewed itself as superior to Macedon and refused to join because of that
Ancient Olympic judges were 'nt fools! Indeed, they were thoroughly familiar w/ both the Argos 'Orestia' (i.e.: Hellenic for 'of-the-mountains') in the backwoods of ancient Macedon-proper (i.e.: where my own parents are from) --- ...named, no less, after the site of their own distinct Doric Hellenic origins (+ irrespective of how some 'self-styled historians' ambitiously misrepresent the matter) --- ...AS WELL (familiarity) w/ the greater Argos of 'yore; wherewith they in-fact DID invite 'any & all' Macedonians (at least those who 'd been privileged w/ financial patrons; of which there were 'nt likely many at-the-time) to boldly participate in 'then-strictly-Hellenic' (i.e.: non-barbarian; pre-Demosthenes) quatrennial 'fellowship' (...entailing athletics); ...hence it 's irresponsible for anyone to employ this misguided argument! ANYONE questioning a Macedonian 's intrinsic 'Hellenicity' in ancient times 'd 've been put-to-death in Macedon-proper, I wager!
How can be someone who was so cruel and mass murderer who was fond of crushing others independence can be great?
Alexander is known as Alexander the great because he conquered the most powerful nation of the time, being a military genius, and being able to handle the various people he encountered in his invasion
King Puru(Porus) crushed his army under army of elephants. Alexander never won against him. The hypocrite so called historians tried their best to hide the shame of loss of Alexander. 😂😂😂😂 Alexander was disgraced and was forced to surrender and return back. 😂😂😂😂😂
Greek influence stayed in the area hundreds of years after. Alexander beat porus, but porus was a respectable opponent, and Indian would have been even harder than Porus.
Another world class narration !

Excellent video. Nice animations and music and all together
KILL THE LEADER YOU WON THE WAR... GAMES OF DEATH WAS
HOW DID YOU GUESS THE NUMBERS OF ARMIES INVOLVED ARE THEY REGULARS OR MERCINARIES... THEY HAVE A WISHING NUGGETS MAYBE
Alexander got new recruits from Persia
If all Greeks were united back then who knows what would have happened...
If he had ten more years ….he would have invaded North and South America. 😂
doubtful. he would more likely be king of India and emperor of china
Turkey 🇹🇷 to this day, bears his symbol on their presidential palace
MACEDONIA 🇲🇰 🇲🇰
It's sad to see how you guys manipulated history
The fact that he was so young achieving all of it, makes all of this even more astounding.
Many people say his full name is ( Alexander the great idiot).
Alexander the Accursed is a more fitting name
what else would you call the man who is successfully invading your home
ΣΤΡΑΒΩΝ : "έστιν ουν ΕΛΛΑΣ και η ΜΑΚΕΔΟΝΙΑ"-----end of story low self esteem Balkan friends....
2:04 uhhhhh.... This is cool an all.... But the 300 is just speculation it was more like just over a 1000 men it's just 300 men sound better
The juvenile manicure accidentally pretend because food moberly murder plus a xenophobic harbor. new, wonderful columnist
Hoping for a Roman conquest content. :D
King of macedonians killing Greek
*Alexander defeated by Pours*
So proud to be half Greek!
gr8 until he lost badly in India and his solders wanna go home on their ponies
wouldn't you want to go home if you haven't seen your family in years
Is this before or after the “300” battle ?
@CZALEO Cienfuegos Alexander the Great was born 124 years after the battle of ''300'' !!!! Battle of Thermopylae (480 BC) Alexander the Great (356 - 323 BC)
@Grandson_06 thank you !
After. He covered that in the first sort of introduction of the Greek city states.
اشكركم على الترجمه للغه العربيه 🇸🇦🙏🏼
I think people forget how they must have suffered 8 years of marching,fighting and being outnumbered all the time the Greeks were truly a force to be reckoned with...
@Temp sad to see Istanbul isnt Constantinople
@Aiden Ornelas yeah true but still love Byzantine empire more they were real Chad's of Greece fought like 5 nations and still kept going
Remember, work smarter, not harder. Alexander figured out how strong his people were, and used them smartly :D. They were so OP
Funny how cassander and antigonus were considered as supporting characters in Alexander's saga LOL. Wonder if they'd ever have a spin-off.
He took over Persia solely based on his good looks 💯😁
He didn't cross the Beas river in India because he know about the power of mighty Maghad kingdom in Ganges valley . And also he didn't defeat the king porus he made a pact with him.
The four winged Leopard.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV, Jesus Christ is the only way......
Alex era la mera verga.
If only we all had the Spirit of a Lion.
Alexander is our Hitler 🇲🇰
Returning to Babylon, he was met by embassies from distant peoples, come to recognise his greatness: Aethiopians , Libyans, European Scythians, Lucanians, Etruscans, Gauls and Iberians But, as he planned his next campaign to Arabia and beyond, he developed a sudden fever, and died days later... Age just 32
@FatBoiBrian yeah I see, Arabia is mostly desert isn’t it, was there any great cities there back then
since Arabs didn't send any delegation. is it a reason why he wanted to invade Arabia
Unlike, too much pub
No wonder Alexander is my favorite commander in Rise of Kingdoms! 💪
He was the greatest and undefeated.
Plss put it in Viet lauguage, my friends want to understand
All the dislikes are by Persians I guess?
most likely, still salty more than 2300 years later😒
When you are so awesome that God himself recognizes your greatness 😎 The book of Daniels 8:21 "The he-goat is the king of the greeks, and the great horn on its forehead is the first king" 👑 "The four that rose in its place when it was shattered are four kingdoms that will issue from his nation, but without his strength."
@King Kashi yeah I know not sure what your thinking
@Barrett Well, damn 😳
Alexander is God
God is fake
Alexander vs ghengis?
A high school teacher said to his class ,by the time Alexander the great was a few years older than you he had conquered the known world, a student then said ,but he had Aristotle as a teacher, we only have you .
Alexandra cause of death has over intoxication... drink too much..
For a greek solider wearing a dress, yeah I'm pretty sure that was less feminine
I'm turning 21 in a couple weeks and I'm amazed that Alexander was my age when he started his campaign, it makes me think about how little my challenges are at the same age compared to his. He's also the same dude who said the very true quote "There is nothing impossible to him who will try."
What a music 🎶
i love it when u call alexander and his army GREEK..BEcause it shows that u know history, not like some other idiots..
They had us in the first half not gonna lie
false is the answer to Varum. Ptolemy never said this! Alexander was a Divine creature, spreading greek culture and language all over the world!
*White people now: Welcome refugees! Can I offer you my wife or daughters?
Alexander earned the respect of people with hard work. I am Anatolian(Kurdish/Turkish) whose land was conquered by him many years ago. However, I Respect and Value him Highly as an Anatolian. I don't see him as an Invader. He deserved and Earned our respect. He was different. He was Fearless. He was the man of Value. Although He was from Hellenic Culture. For me, He was someone that I would die willingly. He did not force his man instead He explains why they should fight for him. I am so sad that we have little knowledge about his daily routine and what drove him. I believe many of his life details were recorded by Ptolemy and documented in the great library of Alexandria/Egypt Which was lost to fire... Where I was born Mezepotiamia has seen many Great Leaders and Kings. But None was like Alexander, Iskender the way we call him. My Hometown has Ancient Castles/Graves Ruins from his Era with Greek Writing. Throughout my life, I sometimes did sit next to those ruins and thought about him. I wish I was with him to go through his glorious journey together. He had many wrongdoings However He was special Regardless. Your Name will stay in Anatolia and Mesopotamia for Thousands of years...
Greeks bittin fingers watchin this
What a apsourd, king of Macedonia, but speaking about ancient greece :D haha, that is german Gustav Droizen, giving name "heleniSAM" to OTO from Bavaria to build "Greece" and rule it. Stop to fake History. 1830 Athin is vilige for the keepers of ships, the end.
Don't cry Bulgaro-Serbian🇲🇰🤡🇲🇰, the ancient Macedonians were Greeks and the whole world knows it. Stop claiming Greek History, accept your Slavic heritage and move on with your life.
Nice video 👌👌. But looks like he was mad about seizing and capturing kingdoms, as far as he could, to show his supremacy. May be grear warrior, but went beyond, what he could manage and rule, which finally undone his unhappy army and died at young age, alas.
Greeks told his army didn't want to go inside India because they were missing homes, Reality - The war of Alexander with King Porus caused him so many casualties he didn't even think of and then told that the Porus is just a small king, Inside this Country, there is an Emipre named Magadha, which has an even bigger army and lands resources and strong men. His army feared this and didn't dare to enter India.
@Raja Ajaz babri masjib ram mandir pe bani thi use jyada kya lega
Can anyone pls tell me why he never invade sparta
@Lyonel K thanks
@Siddhant Mishra osprey publishing could be a good work. If you're into roman history you can also read caesar commentary on gaul. Written by caesar himself
@Lyonel K thanks brother for much useful information can you recommend me the best book on alexander as well as napoleon
@Siddhant Mishra no sparta was kinda a joke at the time . They're days of dominance were over. Kinda like how the uk is no longer the world superpower. Plus alexander mainly invaded persia cause he needed money fast. To stop a rebellions he repealed pretty much all taxes in macedon so he needed to get money super super quick thats why he attacked persia . There were no treasure in sparta
@Lyonel K Isn't he afraid of sparta and the ruthlessness of spartans that he will lost the battle as well as his own life ?
Great video, and very complete ! What's the intro song ?
Hlo bro.. actually Alexander didn't deafted porus.... he stopped the war..because destoryed his amry..so he decided to go back ..
I still cant get enough of his stories more than 2000 years later. He ain't like today's leaders. The bravery of being out of range.
The king of kings. The GOAT.
