Read some history FFS!
FFS!darling the language!
I was merely asking a question because it appears to me that Alexander the Great considered himself a Macedon not a Greek and Macedons today also consider themselves Macedonians not Greek. It is obvious that they don't want to be considered Greek, so why force them to be something they don't want to be?
If somoeone does not want to be your friend why force them?

Sheesh! Simply and totally outrageous! Now why would ANYONE want to keep something of that nature...a secret? If there were any truth to the matter...it wouldnt be a secret..for long. Such a historical find would be the buzz word and news amidst anthropological and archaeological circles...etc
Drama!
Goodness, too many people out there without anything better to do.

It depends on who you ask, the real Macedonians that is Macedonians living on what is the Ancient land of Macedonia consider themselves Greeks as did Alexander and his forefathers.

The ones claiming to be Macedonian from FYROM would have you think that they are the real descendants. But in reality no link to the originals, culturally and ethnically.

After all Leonidas considered himself a Spartan but a Hellene overall..

Here is a quote form the man

"Your ancestors came to Macedonia and the rest of Hellas (Greece) and did us great harm, though we had done them no prior injury. I have been appointed leader of the Greeks, and wanting to punish the Persians I have come to Asia, which I took from you"...

Alexander's letter to Persian king Darius in response to a truce plea, as quoted in Anabasis Alexandri by Arrian; translated as Anabasis of Alexander by P. A. Brunt, for the "Loeb Edition" Book II 14, 4

OK! are you getting the idea here...

I have a headache now..

Alexander the great was not gay you ignorant idiots. There was no such thing as a gay in ancient times....There is absolutly no proof of him being gay. This is just a modern view for gays and queers to celibrate there homosexuality. Its the same old story..any man who has power is now touted as being gay..Tom Cruise, John Trovolta, Simon Cowell, Ronaldo, David Beckham, the list goes on. In our day and age we are obsest with being bloody gay. Alexander was a pure genius who was Greek and change the face of the planet. Just because he drinks with his generals and friends doesnt make him gay. How many guys in the armed forces get drunk and drop their pants in public for fun, or run around with their tops off being macho...This is the same as it is now as it was then...The only thing is now he is called gay because ignorant bafoons want to see him like that...As for him being Greek or Macidonian its not even relivant as Macedonia was part of Greece. Its like saying is someone from Texas American..Ok Macedonia is now indipendant but it wasnt back then.....Some of you guys need to learn before you make stupid comments...And you need to stop watching stupid films and making judgments before you now the truth.

Macedonia was part of Greece at the time and long before and long after Alex the Great. Hence he is known as greek. It doesnt matter if Macidonia is now independant, because Alexander has nothing to do with the new Macidonia. The world changes and different states are formed. What would happen if USA was no longer USA and all the states became different Countries? would all the past historians and country men be none as American! or whatever the new states might be called.... No they would always be none as Americans because at the time of that persons life he was an American...this is the same for Alexander...HE WAS GREEK BECAUSE IT WAS PART OF GREECE.

I agree with you JASON. Alexander The GREAT was not a homosexual. It really infuriates me as to how his life story, and just everything about this great man has been reduced to nothing more than the seemingly lurid life of a homosexual. What an insult to the memory and historical achievements of this great figure in history!

Leave it to Hollywood and society's pathetic willingness to absorb all that crap in, like sheeps to the slaughter...impressionable nutheads to manipulate history to suit their own "take" and agenda on Alexander the Great's life.
Truly pathetic..I tell you...it truly is an injustice to one of history and the world's greatest leaders.

What is next? Are they going to say that the whole world GAY? Sheesh...Give the world a damn break!

Alexander's tomb was still in Alexandria as late as the reign of Caracala (reigned 211 - 217), but reports of it's presence after that are at best sketchy. It was supposively closed to the public by Emperor Septimius Severus around the Year 200 CE. The part of Alexandria that had contained the royal places and, in all likelyhood, Alexander's tomb, fell into the harbor during an earthquake in the early 14th century. There was a major earthquake in 1301 that caused extensive damage in Egypt that may have been the earthquake that did the deed. It's the same one that knocked all the casing stones loose on the pyramids at Giza.

Maybe its you non functioning brain that dosnt realise he was guy, I am not trying to insult you homophobes, I am stating a fact, in ancient times they used to sodomise your boys because they thought their willies were to good to grace a ladies opening, so they would play with little boys.

Go do some research fool...alexander was a doughnut puncher. He rooted boys and his help, he liked it, he enjoyed it. Dosnt mean he didnt do all the great things you speak of. He just liked the bum hole...not the vag!na.

AHHHH let me guess! an uneducated Turkish comment. Its no suprise a Turkish tinkerbell would have to try and and slate the great Greek history. Your nation are nothing but weak cowards. You are a backward civilisation that is the laughing stock of the western world. You dont have any real history thats worth shouting about so you have to try and bring other cultures down to your stink hole level. You are a bunch of thiefs who try and steal from other culturs, your men are weak who can only beat on their women (saying that I doubt you can beat your own women as most of them look butcher than you). Even your own muslim brothers are embaressed about you and try to distance themselves from Turks. I can go on all day about your slimmy nation but I cant be arsed so all I will say is your idea about Alexander the GREEK is typical modern nonsense. You have read what someone else thought and decided to jump on the band wagon and about an historlical figure you know nothing about. In fact I am shocked a Turk can read or even has access to the internet. Your culture has a very big gay history, infact it has one of the highst transvestite cultures in the world and turkish have been known to have the smallest penises along with Indians. It is common knowladge that turkish men have to sit down on the toilet to take a piss because you cant grab hold of your penis.

HAHAHAHAAHAHAHA that is one of the funniest things I have read. I would hate to be turkish if their dicks are that small. I agree with you on so many things. A lot of history gets changed as time goes by, and gay seems to be the top subject about historical figures. Greece has such a wealth of history along with Italy and China that most countries are jealous of it. You have to understand that most history is left to someones interpritation, as none of were alive at that time to see it. I also agree with you about our modern armed forces. In a 1000 years time they might look back at them and say they were gay too. After all, men all drink and shower and sleep together. American wrestling might be looked on as gay too, 2 or more men wearing lycra and make up, oiled up diving and rubbing their bodies on each other sounds pretty queer doesnt it. The only difference is we know its not queer because understand and watch it. But who knows what they will think in years to come.

I think there are a lot of ignorant people who are not that intelligent enough to think for them selves and just believe what they are told

Do try and keep in mind that attitudes and the like also change over time. Greece, even in the time of Alexander, didn't stigmatize homosexuals the way the late Roman Empire and other christian plauged areas did (ironic given how many priests even then were gay). Whether or not Alexander and Hephaestion had that sort of relationship or not is really no one's business but theirs and has no bearing what-so-ever on the fact that Alexander smashed his way across Persia from the Aegean to the Indus, a feat unequalled for another thousand years, until the Arab tribals swelled out of the desert to overwhelm the already exhausted Roman and Persian armies they encountered.

You are wrong, they did stigmatise homosexuals.
"The Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans" english version is volume #14 in the collection known as "Great Books Of The Western World" published by Encyclopedia Britannica, Inc. Turn to page 550 of that volume #14, and, just below the middle of the right-hand column, you will read Plutarch telling us as follows:

"When Philoxenus, his lieutenant on the seacoast, wrote to him to know if he would buy two young boys of great beauty, whom one Theodorus, a Tarentine, had to sell, he was so offended that he often expostulated with his friends what baseness Philoxenus had ever observed in him that he should presume to make him such a reproachful offer. And he immediately wrote him a very sharp letter, telling him Theodorus and his merchandise might go with his good will to destruction. Nor was he less severe to Hagnon, who sent him word he would buy a Corinthian youth named Crobylus, as a present for him."

From the Wikipedia entry on Plutarch...

Life of Alexander

Plutarch's Life of Alexander, written as a parallel to that of Julius Caesar, is one of only five extant tertiary sources on the Macedonian conqueror Alexander the Great. It includes anecdotes and descriptions of events that appear in no other source, just as Plutarch's portrait of Numa Pompilius, the putative second king of Rome, holds much that is unique on the early Roman calendar.

Plutarch devotes a great deal of space to Alexander's drive and desire, and strives to determine how much of it was presaged in his youth. He also draws extensively on the work of Lysippus, Alexander's favourite sculptor, to provide what is probably the fullest and most accurate description of the conqueror's physical appearance.

When it comes to his character, however, Plutarch is often rather less accurate, ascribing inordinate amounts of self-control to a man who very often lost it.[8] It is significant, though, that the subject incurs less admiration from his biographer as the narrative progresses and the deeds that it recounts become less savoury.

Much, too, is made of Alexander's scorn for luxury: "He desired not pleasure or wealth, but only excellence and glory." This also is probably untrue, for Alexander's tastes grew more extravagant as he grew older.

It would seem Plutarch wasn't exactly unbiased. And as I stated earlier, regardless of his orientation, it had no bearing on his command abilities.

A.C.C.R. 1ST INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR FEBRUARY 2010

Dear sir/madam,

We are pleased to inform you of our upcoming event taking place in Naoussa, Greece, in February 2010.
From the 5th - 9th we are organizing a historical and culture seminar which will lead all of you through the presentation of the Ritual of the Rising of the Mummy in the Light of Day.
This ancient tradition progresses towards the tomb of Alexander the Great who was buried in accordance with the Egyptian Rites of Burial.

The principal theme of this seminar is to explore the Ancient Egyptian Religion and its connection to Macedonia, Greece. For centuries the Mystics of Macedonia have, in music and dance, honored the dead king Alexander the Great, following ancient ritualistic forms that have never been found outside Egypt.

As we mention in the site, our aim is to bring in direct contact for the first time, in a world-wide level, the scientific community with this unknown side of history and is mainly addressed to Egyptologists, Historians, Anthropologists, Religion Researchers and Publishers.

This preference stems from the fact that the various aspects of this study will challenge many of the current historical, cultural and religious beliefs found in the wider Balkan area. The whole subject carries an important cultural legacy that has been saved throughout time for well over 2.300 years, yet remains unknown outside the area that is being performed.

We cordially invite you to join us.

More information can be found on our website: www.macmummy.com

We look forward to your visit.

The theory is tangible. It is entirely possible that Alexander would have decided to return to Macedonia by ship, a fast mode of transport of the time. It is also entirely possible he could have become shipwrecked on the coast of Australia.

Would his generals have openly promoted to the public that they lost their king?
It is possible they would attempt to maintain the pretense of having a King, but eventually faked his death.
The theory has merit.
