The Music: We want to get down on our knees and worship the amazing and talented composer who offered us the use of one of his amazing tracks, “Hero”, as our theme music: Jofre Horta. He’s already a big deal in the composing world but he’s going to be even bigger – and you can say you heard him first on our little show! Listen to his whole album on Spotify or iTunes.

Life Of Alexander The Great #61 – The Day After

The day after Alexander died, his inner circle of “bodyguards” (eg his leading commanders) had a conference to decide who would take the king’s place. Would it be Roxanne’s unborn child? What about Heracles, his son to Barsine? Or perhaps Perdiccas, his second-in-command? But there is another, waiting in the wings, and he is the favourite of the army.

Life Of Alexander The Great #60 – The War of the Successors

Well the King is dead. Who will take his place?

As it turns out, this question results in a 40 year war between Alexander’s top men. The War of the Successors lasted longer than Philip and Alexander’s combined reigns.

And we’re going to tell the whole story. Today we talk about the contenders for the throne.

Five of them went to war.

Two became kings.

Only one founded a lasting dynasty of his own.

And eventually produced a woman who helped determine the fate of the Roman Republic, nearly 300 years later.

Were Alexander the Great and Hephaestion lovers?
How much did Alexander really think he was the new Achilles?
