Alexander III of Macedon is better known to modern-day people as “Alexander the Great.” However, who is it that believes he was “great?” When and how did he get this title? Is this description really an accurate depiction of who he was and what he accomplished? In order to really understand his “greatness” we need to examine his “accomplishments” from the point of view of differing peoples, and how they might have viewed him differently.
In a five-paragraph essay explain your opinion of Alexander. Create a thesis stating whether he was great or not. Support this thesis with three mini-claims. Each mini-claim should be justified by two pieces of evidence. Be sure to provide reasoning for each piece of evidence.
