KBC 14: In which of these countries would you find the port city of Alexandria, founded by Alexander the Great?

Answer: Egypt

Alexander the Great left behind a lasting legacy in Egypt in the form of the city of Alexandria ad Aegyptum. In the year 332 BCE, Alexander the Great established Alexandria ad Aegyptum, which would later become his most famous city. Alexandria, which sits on the Nile delta and is adjacent to the Mediterranean Sea, was constructed for one reason and one reason only: to serve as the capital of Alexander the Great’s new empire.
