ALEXANDER THE GREAT - Due to his military genius and natural charisma, Alexander the Great expanded the Ancient Greek empire to span from Greece to India. His reign marks the beginning of the Hellenistic era and of Hellenistic culture.
HERACLES - The Greek predecessor to the Roman Hercules, Heracles was the half-brother of Perseus. His story is the same as Hercules in that he was the strongest hero, and a champion of Olympia. He is seen as the closest Greek equivalent to a demi-god.
