In his short life, Alexander the Great conquered more lands and peoples than any other person in the ancient world. His conquests opened new trade routes from the countries around the Mediterranean Sea all the way to India. For centuries after his death, Greek culture dominated the European world but was flavored by Eastern influence. Alexander's impact was so strong that even during his life some people thought he was a god, and after his death he became a figure of mythical status.
