Alexander The Great sword

King Alexander The Great's Swords (Alexander III) who succeeded his father, Philip II, at an early age, assassinated in 336 B.C. Philip II had prepared his son to be a King, giving him military experience and entrusting his inctelectual training to Aristótle. Alexander The Great worked during the first years of his kingdom to impose his authority on all the suppressed nations under the rule of Macedonia, which had taken adavantage of King Philip's death in order to revolt. Alexander The Great lauched his army against the powerful and vast Persian Empire, continuing the mission that king Philip had started shortly after dying.

ALEXANDER THE GREAT LIMITED SWORD

Alexander went across Asia Minor in victory (Battle of Granico, 334), Syria (Issos, 333), Phoenicia (siege of Tiro, 332), Egypt and Mesopotamia (Gaugamela, 331), until he seized the Persian cities of  Susa (331) y Persépolis (330). Assassinated Darius III, the last emperor Achaemenid, by one of his satrap (Bessos) in order to avoid his surrender, continued  his resistance against Alexander in eastern Iran. In the following picture we can see a falcata-like sword, which Alexander The Great used in his battles.

Alexander The Great's sword of ride

Once conquered the Persian capital, Alexander dismissed the Greek troops which had accompanied him during his campaign and he proclaimed himself  Emperor, occupying the position of the Achaemenids. He launched new campaigns of conquest towards the East: he defeated and killed Bessos, suppressed Partia, Aria, Drangiana, Aracosia, Bactriana and Sogdiana. Master of Central Asia and present Afghanistan, he plunged himself to conquer India (327-325), bearing in mind the conquest of the world. Although he annexed western India (vassalage to King Poros), he had to give up moving forward to the East because of the uprising of his troops, being exhausted after so many conquests and battles.

ALEXANDER THE GREAT FALCATA

The early death of Alexander at the age of 33, as a result of malaria, stopped him from strenghthen his empire, which he had created and relaunched his conquests. His empire did not stand after his death. There were many struggles inside to discuss succession, causing the deaths of Alexander's wives and children, until his empire was divided among their generals: Seleucus, Ptolemy, Antígonus, Lisímacus and Cassander.

Alejandro Magno

The surviving states were called Hellenistic kingdoms, which kept during the following centuries the idea of Alexander of moving the Greek culture into the East, at the time when they let other eastern cultures intrude into the Mediterranean.
