Olympias was a Greek queen, mother of Alexander the Great and a powerful political figure. It is believed that she was involved in the assassination of Philip of Macedon, the powerful military leader of Macedon at that time and the father of Alexander the Great. With the death of Philip, her son went on to conquer the entire Persian Empire and become perhaps the greatest military leader in history. Alexander himself, it is believed, did not take part in the plot.
