Inspired by class discussion on Alexander III of Macedon (better known as ALEXANDER THE GREAT), I felt compelled to design this infographic, which manages to tie in the all-to-real and larger-than-life Alexander to a knot that could not be undone (which had been originally tied by a semi-mythical king related to Greek mythology's own King Midas!). A great story to tell to a group of story-hungry seventh graders (and hopefully the rest of you, as well!) This is the story of the GORDIAN KNOT of Gordium! Enjoy! -Mr. P.
