Alexander had a cruel and a somewhat good side at times. Alexander the Great wasn’t really a great leader/king after all. Even though he had conquered many lands at his time, that doesn’t mean that he should have been given the title “the Great.” A king respects his people and doesn’t do cruel actions in order to get what he wants, even though his father was a king, that doesn’t mean that he should have become one too; his father had achieved a lot but never got the same title that Alexander got. Alexander was a selfish person, who was hard to please, even when people were doing everything for him since he was their king.
