Alexander’s Lovers reveals the personality of Alexander the Great through the mirror of the lives of those with whom he pursued romantic relationships, including his friend Hephaistion, his queen Roxane, his mistress Barsine & Bagoas the Eunuch. Did you know that Alexander got the idea of adopting Persian dress from a book he read in his youth? Had you realised that Alexander’s pursuit of divine honours was part of his emulation of Achilles, that Bagoas undertook a diplomatic mission or that Hephaistion’s diplomacy kept Athens from joining a Spartan rebellion? Are you aware that Aetion’s painting of Alexander’s marriage depicted Hephaistion & Bagoas as well as Roxane and really depicted the King’s passions? Which girl was betrothed to Alexander’s son? Would it surprise you that Alexander’s mourning for Hephaistion was conducted according to models from Homer and Euripides? If you would like to get to know Alexander on a more... More > personal level, then you need to read this book. Second edition, revised & updated.< Less
