Description
Although Alexander the Great is a towering figure in world history—and despite our fascination with him—we have no idea where exactly he is buried. This "compelling tale of conquest [and] political intrigue" (Publishers Weekly) not only tells the story of a brief and spectacular life, but also of an unexplained death, multiple burials, and the never-ending quest for one man's final resting place. The journey ties together seemingly disparate moments in history, from the Muslim invasion of Alexandria in 641 to Napoleon's great defeat in the Battle of the Nile, and involves Ptolemy, Cleopatra, and St. Mark's Church in Venice.
