Alexander the Great didn’t enjoy a long life, but few people have had such a profound effect on the world. In an odd way, perishing so young was probably the best thing Alexander could have done for his legacy – he didn’t grow old and frail, and he wasn’t crushed by the unbearable weight of actually running such a vast and disparate empire. He perished almost as dramatically as he lived.
