Did Alexander have ambitions on conquering Nubia?

By Sunil Kumar

There are accounts that Alexander was certainly interested in conquering Nubia(present-day Southern Egypt and Central Sudan); to bolster his claims of being a “world” conqueror.

However; his plans for going south of Egypt into Nubia were supposedly thwarted by the warrior queen Candace of Meroe. These are all legends mentioned in various books and are speculated to have been given short shrift in history due to Euro-Centric biases in historical coverage and Nubia’s largely black population and heritage.
