Alexander the Great is a household name, yet the majority of people know little more than the odd anecdote about him. The Lion of Macedonia addresses the least known part of his life, his childhood and adolescence. By combining the few known facts and legends with detailed research into daily life in the ancient world, the author portrays a believably fictional account of Alexander’s upbringing. It could have happened this way.
