This series takes a historical look at the ancient world's leading figures, who led armies to victory and ruled over vast domains in a time when the world was still young. As one empire fell, another would rise, led by charismatic and powerful commanders who could unite many people and were touched by greatness. This king of Macedonia claimed to be descended from the gods, and in his 33 years he achieved amazing conquests and explored lands previously unknown to Westerners.
