When his father was assassinated Alexander, aged 20 inherited a strong kingdom and an experienced army. By the time he was 30 he created one of the largest empires of the ancient world. Even though he died at the age of 33, his influence was so pronounced that military leaders in the succeeding centuries used him as a benchmark for leadership and tactics.
