Alexander the Great: Conqueror, genius, and tyrant
If there's one thing nobody can doubt about Alexander the Great, it's his military prowess.
He was crowned king at the age of just 20 years old, but his first military victory came long before that.
At just sixteen, Alexander lead the Macedonian army to a swift win against a Thracian uprising. He not only drove them out, but colonized their territory with Greek settlers and renamed it Alexandropolis.
Yes, the sixteen year old Alexander already had a city named after him.
Of course, this same boy would grow up to conquer Greece, Egypt, Persia, and everything in between. It's easy to view him as an undefeatable hero, as many accounts of history do.
But Alexander had a dark side. He was known for being power hungry and tyrannical, often torturing and killing those who spoke against him.
Nevertheless, Alexander was struck down suddenly from unknown causes at the age of just 32. Though his legacy is complicated as it is vast, few others have changed the world so much in such little time.
