Among his other extraordinary accomplishments, what ancient historical figure is said to have cut the Gordian Knot?

Correct answer:
  • Alexander the Great

Interesting Info:
  • The Gordian Knot was tied by King Gordius, in order to fasten a wagon dedicated to Zeus at a great temple. Zeus later declared that the person who untied the Gordian Knot would become 'Lord of All Asia'. Alexander took the easy way and just cut the thing! During his conquest of Persia, Alexander very nearly fulfilled this prophecy.
