  1. 62. THE DEATH OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT
    62. THE DEATH OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT

    On 10/11 June 323 BC, King Alexander III of Macedon, better known as Alexander ‘the Great’, died in Babylon aged 32. In his lifetime, he had forged one of the largest empires the world had yet seen, theoretically stretching from Greece to the Punjab, from Egypt to Samarkand. What followed his death, however, was an imperial implosion. As soon as Alexander the Great died, the thin thread holding much of his empire together disintegrated. Tristan Hughes will tell the story of the crisis that ensued after his demise.
