Alexander III of Macedon, commonly known as Alexander the Great, was a king (basileus) of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon and a member of the Argead dynasty. He spent most of his ruling years on an unprecedented military campaign through Asia and northeast Africa, and by the age of thirty, he had created one of the largest empires of the ancient world, stretching from Greece to northwestern India. He was undefeated in battle and is widely considered one of history’s most successful military commanders.

Best Pairings for Alexander
As an Infantry Commander, he works well with all other Infantry commanders as both primary or secondary, especially when he is with Richard I and Guan Yu. However, he should always be secondary when using him with Guan Yu. Apart from the Infantry Commanders, Yi Seong-Gye is a viable option as both Primary or Secondary, since most of his skills don’t care about what troop type you bring with him.
