Which Conqueror Are You?

An interesting little quiz I found on the official Total War forums and decided to share here. The questions themselves aren't too detailed, but I'm thinking the quiz will still be a nice little distraction for a few of us.

As for which conqueror I'm most similar to, I ended up matching closest with Alexander the Great Guess I better get busy with the binge drinking and conquering everything I see.

I am Asoka. I have never heard of him before but, from what I now read about him, I think it's fairly accurate.

Alaric tried hard to play by the rules. All he wanted was a little land for his people and a bit of respect, but deceitful and incompetent emperors failed to give him his due. His setting fire to Rome was not so much the act of a barbarian set on destroying an evil empire, but of an all-but Roman whose bluff, having been called, had no choice but to destroy the symbolic shell of Rome's former glory.

Since you are Alaric, you may find A.A. Milne's "The King's Breakfast" resonates. You are just, honest, and try to play by the rules, but find the cards are stacked against you. You are a great second-in-command, a kingmaker, if you will. You are polished, inconspicuous, loyal, and would probably make a great spy, but you tend to be put in impossible positions, to which you respond with frustration. Although you're too shrewd to be a sucker, the people who take advantage of others can spot you a mile away.

Apparently I matched best with Julio Cesar, sorry I meant Julius Caesar. Which you could say is kind of fitting when you consider which military leader I favoured during my younger days. Would not have minded a few more possible choices to be matched with, but oh well.

Apparently I am akin to Alaric. Ah well.

General Rawlinson- This is most unsatisfactory. Where are the Sherwood Foresters? Where are the East Lancashires on the right?

Brigadier-General Oxley- They are lying out in No Man's Land, sir. And most of them will never stand again.

Im am Caesar but I didn't choose to give loot to my people only land. Possibly "loot" in another sense?

Ashoka, and he resided just 50 km East from where I live. Pretty good prediction, though.

Cyrus is credited with the release of the Hebrews. He was also a Persian empire-builder who divided the land into satrapies, the founder of the Achaemenid Dynasty, and possibly a convert to Zoroastrianism. Cyrus tried to marry Tomyris, the queen of the Massegatae, and may have been killed while fighting them.

It seems I'm closest to Alaric...

You Are the Conqueror Alexander the Great

But wait, there is more:
Alexander the Great was a son of Philip of Macedonia, according to most accounts, although Ammon might have been his father, too. Alexander took his gods seriously, as he did his job of getting revenge (for Persia's attacks on Greece). Whether or not this was excuse or true belief, we'll never know. We'll also probably never know what killed him. Although most of his time as king was spent conquering the known-world to the Indus River, he still had plenty of time for too much wine, too many women, and, not so much song, as mad or drunken behavior. His passions included his friend Hephaestion and his horse Bucephalus.

Since you are Alexander, friends love you almost as much as they fear you. You can be incredibly sympathetic, understanding, and insightful one moment, and completely nasty and mean the next. You would have no trouble firing people and would probably do a pretty good gate-keeping job when hiring, as well. Not that you should be in human resources: You might have trouble abiding by the company code of ethics and wind up in harrassment suits. Like the other conquerors, you need to be in charge. Handling a large, complicated, long-term, global project should be a piece of cake. Anything less would bore you to tears, which you wouldn't be afraid to shed publicly. You're not too concerned with the opinion others hold of you because you have a strong sense of who you are and your own morality. Mortality, on the other hand, is something you haven't come to grips with.

Did this thing again. I am Alexander *oh my god orgasms*

Apart from battle...he is best known for drinking a ton of wine, participating with a variety men and women in 24/7 orgies from the Mediterranean to India. Where west meets east for a concoction of flavours.

Alexander is my hero.
