Like War and Peace or Waverley it adds to history in order to explain history. This may be true, but it is also the case that Alexander, like many heroes, had become a magnetic figure who attracted many stories of very different kinds, and of whom almost anything could be believed. It is striking that the readership assumed by the romance as we know it was apparently equally happy to read about battle formations and philosophers, Amazons and underwater exploration. Various versions of the Alexander Romance were known in the Middle Ages (as were some other classical accounts of his life), and he was a very popular literary figure (see Cary 1957).
The account of the Brahmans would fit that category too, but it can also be linked to the vogue for histories of holy men or aretalogies popular in the imperial period. It is striking that in his fantastic travels Alexander does not achieve his goal of reaching the end of the world. Again and again he is advised to turn back, and is told that his goal is inappropriate. In the Middle Ages he was often used in exemplary literature as an example of overweening pride or hubris, and this tendency is already visible in the Alexander Romance.
