So who is Don Quixote you ask, well...Published in two volumes a decade apart, in 1605 and 1615, Don Quixote is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature, and one of the earliest canonical novels, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published. In a 2002 list, Don Quixote was cited as the "best literary work ever written"
"My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the TRUE emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next." If you know not whence this quote cometh, be shamed forever
So who was Alex and what made him so great? Well if you believe Hollywood he looked an awful lot like Colin Farrell and his Mom was a bit of a hottie as well. However if you want a more accurate description it appears he was a king of Macedonia, and by the age of thirty was the creator of one of the largest empires in ancient history, stretching from the Mediterranean to the Himalayas. He was undefeated in battle and is considered one of the most successful commanders of all time. So a high achiever then, go figure. He was a leader and in those times one would guess he had a sword then?
