Philip was murdered and Alexander inherited a powerful yet volatile kingdom. He was the king of the Ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon and a member of the Argead dynasty. When he was became the king he was only 19 years old. . He quickly garnered the support of the Macedonian army, including the general and troops he had had fought with at Chaeronea.

Alexander was wanted to regime on whole world so he started his journey of wining. He reached Taxila near Jhelum River. Raja Ambhi was the ruler of Taxila at time. Alexander kept him self   3,500 horse and 10,000 foot soldiers to win the India. Raja Ambhi was fear with Alexander and he admits defeat then Raja Ambhi sported to Alexander. Next kingdom was between Jhelum River and Chenab River. Raja Porus was the king of that kingdom. Alexander sent a massage to Raja king. He said to king without fight he also admit the defeat to him but king Porus refused to do this. In 326 BC a battle became between Alexander and Raja Porus.

After win this kingdom the army of Alexander wants to take some rest near the Ganges River. East of Porus's kingdom, near the, was the powerful Nanda Empire of Magadha and Gangaridai Empire of Bengal. Fearing the prospects of facing other powerful Indian armies and exhausted by years of campaigning, his army mutinied at the Beas River refusing to march further east. Alexander’s army refuse to persuade them to march further into India. Army said my family, my mother, my wife, my child were wait for him and we are also miss a lot them.  The map was followed by Alexander that was wrong that’s why thought that the world ended a mere 1,000 km, at the edge of India. Alexander, seeing the unwillingness of his men agreed and turned back.

Now people called Sikandar to Alexander. On 29 May he stopped to take dinner and rest at Baghdad. He take dinner with his close friend and they deinked heavy. He was not feeling well. Alexander's health steadily deteriorated as fever wracked his body. He was too weak to leave his bed. After suffering 10 days he was died. Historians have debated the issue for centuries, attributing it to poison, malaria, typhoid fever or other maladies.
