Alexander the Great and Hellenization in the 4th Century BCEAlexander the Great was the son of Philip II of Macedon and the man who started the #hellenistic era during the 4th century BCE. After inheriting the Macedonian Empire when Philip II died, Alexander the Great extended it into the largest empire his world had seen. #Alexander the #Great fought many battles, but one of the most significant one was the #Battle of #Issus. The Battle of #Issus saw Alexander the Great and his soldiers fight Darius III and the Achaemenid Persian Empire. #Hellenization was the process of disseminating Greek culture and language throughout the areas Alexander had conquered, and this process continued after his death, led by his generals Ptolemy and Seleucus. The 4th c. BCE also saw the rise of Greek philosophy with the lives of Plato and Aristotle, who was Alexander's tutor. 2:28 Battle of Issus 5:46 Hellenization 6:19 Western Philosophy If you like our videos, please support us by becoming a member or donating to our non-profit company: - https://www.ancient.eu/membership/ - https://www.ancient.eu/donate/ - www.patreon.com/ahe Ancient History Encyclopedia www.ancient.eu IMAGES: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Map_Macedonia_336_BC-en.svg Marsyas GNU Free Documentation License https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Siege_tryre.gif The Department of History, United States Military Academy Public Domain https://member.ancient.eu/image/546/the-battle-of-issus---the-decisive-moment/ Frank Martini Public Domain https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MacedonEmpire.jpg Captain Blood CC BY-SA 4.0 https://member.ancient.eu/image/846/thracian-silver-tetradrachm/ Mark Cartwright CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 http://www.dean.usma.edu/history/Atlases/AncientWarfare/AncientWarfare.html US Military Academy Public Domain https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Battle_of_Issus_mosaic_-_Museo_Archeologico_Nazionale_-_Naples_2013-05-16_16-25-06_BW.jpg#/media/File:Alexander_the_Great_mosaic.jpg Unknown author Public Domain https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Battle_of_Issus_mosaic_-_Museo_Archeologico_Nazionale_-_Naples_2013-05-16_16-25-06_BW.jpg Unknown author Public Domain https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Alexander_and_the_body_of_Darius.jpg Edmund Ollier Public Domain https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_the_Great#/media/File:Universal_manual_of_ready_reference_-_antiquities,_history,_geography,_biography,_government,_law,_politics,_industry,_invention,_science,_religion,_literature,_art,_education_and_miscellany_(1904)_(14590266027).jpg Jean Leon Gerome Ferris No restrictions https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_the_Great#/media/File:The_Macedonian_phalanx_counter-attacks_during_the_battle_of_the_carts.jpg Public Domain https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/22/Greek-Persian_duel.jpg Άγνωστος Public Domain https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Makedonische_phalanx.png F.
