Alexander’s Conquests From Diplomacy to Gaugamela


As Alexander confronted the resilient city of Tyre, Darius extended a remarkable peace offer through an envoy. Darius proposed peace, the safe return of his family, ten thousand gold talents (equivalent to about $3 billion today), all the Macedonian-conquered land, and the hand of his daughter in marriage.

Undeterred, Alexander, his twenty-year-old son, took up the mantle in 334 B.C. Armed with a formidable army, he set out to fulfill his father’s dream Alexander’s Conquests From Diplomacy to Gaugamela.
