Alexander III the Great, the King of Macedonia and conqueror of the Persian Empire is considered one of the greatest military geniuses of all times. He was inspiration for later conquerors such as Hannibal the Carthaginian, the Romans Pompey and Caesar, and Napoleon. Alexander was son of Philip II, King of Macedonia, and Olympias, the princess of neighboring Epirus. Having conquered the entire Persian Empire he made Macedonia the largest world empire, stretching from Europe to India. For the next three centuries the Macedonians ruled most of this vast area, ending with Cleopatra VII in 30 BC, the last Macedonian ruler of Egypt. This period of 300 years is known today as "Hellenistic".
