Mystery has long surrounded the strange and protracted death of one of history's greatest leaders.


Having built one of the ancient world's largest empires, Alexander the Great's death at the age of just 32 has perplexed scholars for centuries. Some believe that members of his inner circle may have plotted to murder him while others believe he died of natural causes.

I lean more towards a homicide.  This wouldn't have been the only time a megalomaniac leader was killed by someone close to him.  Julius Caesar is a pretty famous one, not too mention Alexander's own dad.

I reckon he had Syphilis and it jsut rotted his brain.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Without a body and nothing but hearsay, we can only guess as to whether he was poisoned or if he suffered from a illness. I think Dr Leo Sche, has been watching FAR too many episodes of Cold Case..
