Before the creation of the 12 Gods of Olympus, many of our gods were already worshipped all over Greece, as can be seen by the temples of Artemis, Zeus, Apollo or Apello, Athena and Poseidon, in Athens, Peloponnese and Samos. our religion was also strongly linked to God Helios (the Sun), the bringer of light and Spring.

Alexander “The Great” Macedon III loses the battle to Malaria and leaves us behind at the age of 33.Alexander born to parents King Philip II and Queen Olympia in 356 B.C.

A pleasant thank you to Aristotle for teaching Alexander his brilliant military leadership that allows him to be one of those remembered as one of the most powerful rulers

Alexander took over Macedonia as King when his father was assassinated in 336 B.C.,the Great served as king of Macedonia from 336 to 323 B.C. During his time of leadership, he united Greece, reestablished the. Corinthian League and conquered the Persian Empire. `
