#This is because of Alexander isnt it
Actually yes it absolutely is.
What happens when you leave your precocious 16 year old home alone with the fully-gassed army, his boyfriend, and an overly permissive babysitter named Aristotle.
No, literally. He stole his father’s army while he was away and invaded the neighboring kingdom.
SIMON THANK YOU FOR THIS
I read the words “Fully gassed army, his boyfriend, and an overly permissive babysitter named Aristotle” and snorted coffee all over my desk, because this is the most beautifully true and eloquent way of summarizing Alexander’s formative years I’ve ever seen.
And for others; he did. He absolutely did. This led to some Tension in the family, and when Philip of Macedon was killed there was rampant speculation that Alexander or his mother were behind the killing.
She was. She absolutely was.
I KNEW IT.
Call it…an informed guess.
