    I challenge anybody to find a single person who influenced the course of human history more than Alexander the Great. He helenized the known world. Established an empire all the way out to India. He conquered all the great civilizations of the time, Persia, Egypt, and India and only stopped there because he ran out fresh troops. He settled Greek peoples across the known world and all by the time he was 32. After his death, Alexander's generals split up his empire which established dynasties that would last for hundreds of year. "The Great" has never been more appropriate.
