Alexander the Great in a few short years ruled a very large empire.
He came to the throne in 336BC at the age of 19 and died thirteen years later in Babylon at the age of 32 in 323BC
Alexander imported of Greek colonists and culture to the East which is still seen in these countries to this day. He with Aristotle established Koine Greek so everyone spoke and wrote the same Greek.
After his death, it was split into four regions.
