The queen has a strange dream, and on consulting the Oracle of Dodona, it is proclaimed that the child to be born to her will be the son of Zeus, the king of the Gods, and is destined for greatness. The child is eventually born, and is named Alexander. Alexander's father Philip is an ambitious man and has grand plans for expanding the Macedonian empire. Alexander grows up admiring his father's courage and imbibing his vision. Alexander and his friends including Ptolemy, Hephaestion, Seleucus, and Philotas are initially educated by Leonidas who teaches them the art of warfare and instils in them the values of pride, courage, and magnanimity. Later, Philip sends his son and his friends to the great Greek philosopher Aristotle who teaches them science, literature, and philosophy.
