Before he became Alexander the Great, he was Alexandros,
son of Philip, the celebrated king of Makedon. But rather than
a life of luxury, as prince he must excel his
peers in all ways: be faster, smarter, stronger, and
more courageous, tackling problems without any help.
Competition and status define one's fate in his world,
loyalty rare and precious.
Alexandros finds that loyalty in Hephaistion, one
of the boys assigned to accompany him for lessons under
Aristoteles. With Hephaistion's fidelity and friendship, he learns to
trust his skills and become a leader of men.
