Alexander, in my opinion is a controversial figure. yes he did conquer most of the known world by age 32. but does this fact make him a great leader? or was he a materialist ruler? Due to a childhood that is believed to be 'regressed', Alexander had a deep love for himself. Thus, a simple case of narcissism allowed his mind to be preoccupied with infinite power and glory. Are these the traits of a good leader? His desire for materialism, and his socio-economic place gave him virtually all the power he wanted. He gorged in his narcissism by conquering every land he sought fit. His grandiose sense of self worth made his opinion the only opinion that mattered. anyone who stood in his way would die. Did Alexander benefit and improve his country as a whole? was Alexander after all, so great??
Alexander died at the young age of 32. The gods are said to have a way of punishing such pride.
