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.

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..
