Alexander's Impact on World History
Alexander's most lasting achievement was the spread of Greek culture beyond the Greeks themselves. This spread of Greek culture has been termed "pan-Hellenism."
Alexander married a daughter of Persia's King Darius. He encouraged his soldiers to take Persian wives. Foreign gods and goddesses were worshipped by Alexander and his men, who recognized these deities as foreign incarnations of Greek gods and goddesses.
Trade was encouraged throughout Alexander's empire. To facilitate trade and strengthen his empire, Alexander settled Greeks throughout the lands he conquered. The culture that emerged, mingling Greek traditions with local customs and beliefs, is called "Hellenistic."
