and mistresses but no one ever spoke about him. If he was attracted to his same sex he would have been Bi-sexual. His best and closest friend was Hephaestion. Hephaestion was thought to be Alexander s lover because of the response he gave when Alex s mother wrote him a note saying to keep his distance from Alex. His exact response was: Stop quarreling with me; not that in any case I should care. You know Alexander means more to me than anyone. If this was a sexual relationship, it wasn t documented. This was very rare because they were both the same age and in Greece Bi s were usually between an adult and young man. Well Bi or not Alexander was still the greatest king alive because, even if the odds were 10 to 1, he would still fight his best and win. His army contained 35,000

men and although they fought Darius army of 500,000, they still won. And although they fought against the mercenaries from Egypt that contained 40,000 men, they still always won. Long live Alexander s great army much like himself, The King!!! How s America? Well back then America wasn t discovered but it did make a difference because if he hadn t done what he did then we might not be here today. Many men had to die in those wars so that we could live here peacefully. What if he hadn t moved a finger to help our ancestors? We wouldn t have the rights we have today!!!!!!!!!!!!! Paying my respects Well I have never done a report on Alexander the great. Now that I have done one I notice all the great things he did for people and I see why he is so great. Now I understand the meaning

of his name. He not only fought for the people but he risked his life so they could live in peace. I know that if I could meet him, I would be honored so much that I would bow and clean his feet out of respect for him and I would be proud to say that was my king.
