Alexander the Great was 5'6
post #1

I've read that he was anywhere from 5'5-5'7 which might have been average for his time, but certainly short for today.

One of the greatest warriors and leaders who ever lived. His father was purportedly 5'11. They measured his skeleton.

Oliver Stone's "Alexander" was one of the greatest movies I've ever seen. I was a history buff as a youngster and was floored at how all of the imagery in the movie aligned with what I had imagined when reading about him in high school and college.
