How far east did Alexander the Great extend his empire?

1 Answer


Up to India


Alexander's Empire went from Greece, all the way up to Pakistan. The reason why he stopped at the outskirts of India though, is because his army was already waning, they wanted to return to their families after all this conquering. Secondly, they were so incredibly outnumbered, that Alexander decided it was simply not worth it, and turned back. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Alexander-Empire_323bcjpg
