Alexander the Great

Author Judith Tarr weaves legends into an intensely romantic fantasy series set in ancient Greece and Macedon.

Alexander the Great ruled the greatest Empire of the ancient world, but he was ruled by his mother, called Olympias. There are as many legends about this powerful Queen as there are of her famous son, and the stories began long before she even met Philip of Macedon.
