Alexander the Great

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 brought Greek colonists and culture to the East, which is still seen in these countries to this day. With Aristotle he established Koine Greek so everyone spoke and wrote the same Greek.

After his death, his empire was split into four regions.

In Daniel 7 Alexander is represented by the Bear and in Daniel 8 by the He-Goat single horn.

Check out Daniel 11 and what it says about the 400 year period.
