The Greek generals and soldiers are not completely convinced in this marriage, as the Greeks saw the newly conquered as barbarians.

Later, Cleitus, an officer of Alexander, who was to be governor of Bactria, got involved in a drunken dispute with Alexander, where Cleitus insulted Alexander, leading to Alexander killing Cleitus.

His lover Hephaistion dies from Typhus and a few months later Alexander joins him in death. With Alexander's death, his generals divide his kingdom. Ptolemy is shown as creating a biography about Alexander, where the movie suggests the generals poisoned Alexander and sickness did not sicknesskill him.
