What are some strengths and weaknesses of Alexander the Great?

What are some of the weaknesses and strengths of Alexander the Great? I am doing a report and ned a lot of help! Thanks!

Ego was the biggest issue. There's a supposed quote of his father that goes "My son, ask for thyself another kingdom, for that which I leave is to small for thee"

If the quote is historically accurate, there's no doubt that this could have developed into a megalomania complex in his life. He also was far too driven in the idea of conquering the Asian mainland.

Another story of him tells of the Gordian knot, and that the man who could untie the knot was rightful ruler of all Asia. The story goes that Alexander took his sword and cut through the knot, allowing the whole thing to unravel and fall to his feet. Yet again, Megalomania. He led his men through most of southern Asia, but being men, they were easily tired of the war and bloodshed from the years of marching through the continents. Tales refer to his men finally turning on him and sending him tampered medicines to kill him.

No such tales are confirmed, as the death is still considered shrouded in mystery today. Some say it was natural causes, but many of the accounts say he was still very healthy in his early thirties (having died at 33) and that the death was strange to be of natural causes.

Hope that helps with your need of flaws/weaknesses. As for strengths/merits; the man was very charismatic and a brilliant tactician, IMO.
