Olympias: Mother of Alexander the Great

Post by Sandros »

As Christmas is approaching and I am wanting to gift myself a book, I'm intersted on some reviews for this one: Olympias: Mother of Alexander the Great by E. Carney. Is it worth? I have other book by E. Carney on Women and monarchy in Macedonia.
Would be glad on any review!

Short answer. Yes.

Beth is the leading scholar on Olympias, hands-down.
