comment Did it make sense for the Roman Empire to build a great wall?
They actually had a wall in central Europe, with watchtowers, checkpoints and the like. But it was of wood rather than of stone. This is because France and Germany had a lot of forests but little stone available. Good question, I vote to reopen.

comment Was Alexander the Great ever an emperor?
@Felix Goldberg Alexander was a king. He was not king of kings or superking. His highest title in Corinth League was that of supreme commander (the same as that of Agamemnon during Troyan war for instance).
