Alexander the Great conquered the largest empire the world had ever seen while still in his twenties but fell fatally ill in Babylon before reaching 33 years old. His wife Roxanne was still pregnant with what would be his only legitimate son, so there was no clear-cut heir. The surviving accounts of his dying days differ on crucial detail, with the most popular version claiming Alexander uttered ‘to the strongest’ when asked to nominate a successor on his deathbed. Decades of ‘civil war’ ensued as Alexander’s hard-won empire was torn asunder by generals in the bloody ‘funeral games’ his alleged final words heralded in. The fighting for supremacy inevitably led to the extermination of his bloodline.

But was Alexander really so short-sighted and irresponsible?

Finally, after 2,340 years, the mystery is unravelled. In a forensic first, David Grant presents a compelling case for what he terms the ‘greatest succession cover up of all time’. Alexander’s lost Last Will and Testament is given new credibility and Grant deciphers events that led to its erasure from history by the generals who wanted to carve up the empire for themselves.

David Grant has lived and worked around the world and filed a number of international patents which set out to change the status quo; unsurprisingly, he questions everything he reads, ancient and modern. He has an MA in ancient history and recently self-published a 917-page academic tome on Alexander after a decade of research. This forged a close working relationship with archaeologists and forensic anthropologists working on the Macedonian royal burials at Vergina, resulting in his 2019 title Unearthing the Family of Alexander the Great. He has further books planned challenging the excepted version of events surrounding the Macedonian king. Grant now resides in London.
