His death is still shrouded in mystery. However, the story of this great emperor's death is still being passed on unceasingly.

 

The story goes that he realized that death was coming and that he would not be able to return to his homeland in time. He told his officers: “I am about to leave this world. I have 3 wishes. Do what I say." The generals obeyed with teary eyes.
 
1. Let the best healers carry my coffin.
 
2. Spread my possessions, including all money, gold, diamonds, gems on the way to the cemetery.
 
3. Let my hands hang loose and leave them out for all to see.
 
One of his generals was so surprised by these unusual requests that he asked Alexander for an explanation. Alexander the Great replied:
 
"I want the best healers to carry my coffin to prove that, in the face of death, even the best healers in the world don't have the power to bring death back to life.
 
I want to spread all the gold coins on the road to let everyone know that, if you have wealth on this Earth, wealth will have to stay on Earth.
 
I want my hands to swing in the wind, to make people understand that, as we came into this world with empty hands, we also leave this world with empty hands. We will have nothing left, after our most precious asset has run out, which is HEALTH and TIME."
