The King’s Birthday

Birthday boy!

Alexander’s birthday is held to be on 20th or 21st July. To celebrate this auspicious fact, the king is giving away a copy of The Landmark Arrian: The Campaigns of Alexander, which is on order from the Amazonian traders even as we speak (see its pro-file here).

If you would like to go into the Corinthian helmet (or similar) simply drop the king’s Other Secretary an e-mail (thesecondachilles [at] explaining who your favourite person in the age of Alexander is, and why. Don’t say Alexander himself – that is taken as a given. If you prefer feel free to tweet Alexander your answer, or leave a comment on his Facebook page.


  • To enter you must be a follower of @AlexanderIII or @Ptolemy_I_Soter or @PtolemysRHG on Twitter or a liker of Alexander’s page on Facebook
  • There’s no word limit but please be reasonable!
  • The names of all entrants will be put on a slip of paper, which will then be pulled out from a Corinthian helmet or substitute on Sunday 24th August at 10pm (GMT).
  • One entry per person!
  • Alexander’s Other Secretary does not reserve the right to publish entries on this blog – he will ask the author first if it is alright to do so

Good luck!
