I interviewed most of my friends and family members, and results came out as all the males that I interviewed knows somewhat about Alexander, as well as most of the females were just heard about this name, but knowing nothing about this famous guy in history.
Steven Zhu, 19, one of my friend, interviews through facetime. Do you know who Alexander the Great was? Of course. What do you know about him? He’s the Greek King who conquered lots of places, such as Macedonia, Egypt, Persia, and Asia. His empire was one of the largest empires in history, but then he stops to extend his empire because his army was tired and complained about it. He also speared the idea of Hellenism.Where did you learn about him? I don’t remember, maybe it’s from one of the books that I read before.
Yulin Lin, 18, cousin, at home. Do you know who Alexander the Great was? Yes. What do you know about him?He was born in the Macedonia (the capital city of Pala) and tutored by a famous scholar of Ancient Greece (he forgot the name, but this guy is Aristotle). when Alexander was 18, his expedition with his father. and when was 20 years old, he inherited the throne from his father. He is the greatest military genius in European history, he builts Macedonian Empire….(he said a lot) Where did you learn about him? from an anime call “Fate/zero” (he showed me a picture of Alexader the great in this anime)
my cousin described a little about this anime, which is basically a war of Holy Grail between people, and these people have a special skill which they can summon the soul from the ancient world to help them win the war, Alexander was one of the soul that’s been summoned.
Lilly Chen, 19, one of my friend, at her house. Do you know who Alexander the Great was? I don’t know, but I heard this name before.What do you know about him? …He was a famous guy (obviously!). Where did you learn about him? I don’t know, I heard it from somewhere, maybe from my boyfriend.
From what all guys know and what learned from class, the information mostly matches, such as the Macedonian Empire, and the large armies. all the information were agreed with that Alexander was a genius in military strategists.
