Alexander the Great had three wives, all three of which were connected to the royal family of the Persian Empire. Their names were Roxana, Stateira II, and Parysatis II. Roxana was his first wife, whom he married in 327 B.C. She was a Bactrian princess, meaning she would inherit important parts of the Persian Empire. Alexander married her after defeating Darius III for the first time in order to make his rule over the Persian Empire more legitimate.
