By turns charismatic, ruthless, brilliant, power hungry, diplomatic and bloodthirsty, Alexander inspired such loyalty in his men they followed him anywhere and, if necessary, died in the process. Though Alexander the Great died before realizing his dream of uniting a new realm, his influence on Greek and Asian culture was so profound it inspired a new historical era—the Hellenistic Period. Alexander the Great was born in Pella, Macedonia, in 356 B.C. to King Philip II and Queen Olympias.
Zeus stuck them all with a bolt of lighting and killed all, except Odysseus. Odysseus, like me, finished the journey “but not with our friends”. (855) In The Odyssey, Odysseus faces many challenges and repeatedly loses the men in his crew.

Aeneas takes solace in the fact that his heirs will continue to fight bravely, as shown on the shield. Furthermore, he knows that if he does not fight bravely for Rome, there will no longer be a Rome for his descendants to fight for, which inspires him.
