Greek Politics/Prominent People

While touring in Greece, I came across an old building in Athens. So, I decided to look inside and found many cool facts about ancient Greek history. Did you know that Athens was the very first democracy ever created. This really struck me by surprise because in the United Staes the government is democracy. Another cool fact I found was some of the great leaders at the time. The main person who had the most information was Alexander the Great. He was born in Macedon and soon became the ruler in that town. But, then he started expanding and finally took control of the Persian Empire. This was by far the greatest event by a Greek person. But, his death did lead to the splitting of the empire into 3 separate dynasties.
