History of Unrest

Neighboring civilizations have both hindered and helped the Persian Empire. Collisions between the Greek and Persian Empires began as early as 550 B.C. as both sought for expanded political and territorial control. As Alexander advances, King Darius and the council must evaluate individual and collective motives to determine who is friend and who is foe.

Alexander the Great

Upon succeeding his father King Philip II as King of Macedon in 336 B.C., Alexander the Great initiated an unprecedented imperial conquest. Strategic, intellectual, and ambitious, Alexander poses a significant threat to every surrounding civilization. Will Alexander be open to a diplomatic solution? As Alexander and his army cross the Hellespont, King Darius and his council must decide how to defend against Alexander’s expansion.
