Deviations from History
- Alexander is referred to as Philip II's first son. There is a certain level of ambiguity to this statement as Alexander was Philip's only son by his fourth wife Olympias but his second son overall as Philip's firstborn son was named Arrhidaeus, later known as Philip III of Macedon upon Alexander's death.
- Alexander was not believed to be Zeus' nephew but rather his son.
- Philip II did not drown in an accident arranged by Darius III but was murdered by his personal bodyguard Pausanis Orestis at the instigation of either Olympias or Alexander.
- Memnon of Rhodes is portrayed as having died in battle rather than of illness.
