Alexander the Great: Classic Children Book By Jacob Abbott
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Alexander III of Macedon (20/21 July 356 – 10/11 June 323 BC), commonly known as Alexander the Great (Greek: Ἀλέξανδρος ὁ... More > Μέγας, Aléxandros ho Mégasiii[›] from the Greek ἀλέξω alexo "to defend, help" + ἀνήρ aner "man"), was a king of Macedon, a state in northern ancient Greece. Born in Pella in 356 BC, Alexander was tutored by Aristotle until the age of 16. By the age of thirty, he had created one of the largest empires of the ancient world, stretching from the Ionian Sea to the Himalayas. He was undefeated in battle and is considered one of history's most successful commanders. Alexander's legacy includes the cultural diffusion his conquests engendered. He founded some twenty cities that bore his name, most notably Alexandria in Egypt. Alexander's settlement of Greek colonists and the resulting spread of Greek culture in the east resulted in a new Hellenistic civilization, aspects of which were still evident in the traditions of the Byzantine Empire in the mid-15th century.< Less

Instruit d'histoire, il se disait descendant des hommes ayant conquis sa terre pour y fonder des comptoirs et faire commerce. Il soutenait que, dans ses veines, coulait du sang atlante, égyptien, Imazighen, phénicien, carthaginois, romain, vandale, byzantin... Il avait appris à connaître les bancs d’huîtres perlières et surtout celles qui donnaient les plus belles nacres et les plus belles perles...< Less
