Alexander I was the King of Greece in the early 20th Century. World War I had just ended, and since you don’t want to stop warring all at once, Greece decided to go to war with the Ottoman Empire (now Turkey).
With the help of Britain and France he was wooping Turkey. However, in 1920, while he was strolling through the Royal Gardens in Athens with his dog, Alexander was attacked. By monkeys.
Nobody really knows where they came from, some historians claimed they were his pets and that they were attacking his dog cause they didn’t like it. Others think they were wild monkeys. I think they were trained Turkish assassins dressed in adorable people clothes.
The king was bitten on the hand, the hand got infected and Alexander died of sepsis. It turns out that bite changed history in the region.
After the death of Alexander, his father Constantine returned to the throne. Unfortunately, back in WWI, Constantine helped the germans so GB and France hated him.
The Greek army was destroyed, a quarter of a million soldiers died, Greece lost all the land that Alexander got. And then Greece and Turkey ad a big fight aabout who invented the kebab.
