He didn't even get to Carthage. He was making plans for it when he died. If he did, and after that took Italy, he would have no doubt eventually worked his way to Britannia.

The reason for that is political,

By the time of the ascent of Macedon, Sparta and Thebes were the big bullies of Ancient Greece. Everyone else hated them as they were empire builders among the greek cities (as with Athens).

So one reason Philip and Alexander managed to conquer all of Greece at all was that they kept pushing the argument

"Come on, join us and we'll show those Spartans that we don't need them to run things".

Thus Sparta was left out of it. In fact, in Asia Minor, I forgot where right now - I think after one of the myriad of sieges they performed - they even sent a present to Athens with the pretext that they had avenged the burning of their temples during the persian wars. The letter attached to this read:

"From Alexander, king of all the greeks except for Sparta".

The point being that Sparta was NOT standing by the rest of Greece during this crusade against the east. (Sparta was historically a strong ally of Persia, as Persia paid Sparta to shake things up in Greece. everyone knew this)

>>275069
He Ignored greek colonies in Magna Graecia and other spots around the meditarenean and the black sea. So no, he did not conquer all the greeks like
>>275269
and
>>275274 claim.
>>
>>275084
that really worked
>laughingrothbard.jpg
>>
>>276684
Some of this, but other reason too
Sparta was a shithole at this point in time and Phillip didn't stand to gain much from conquering it. Alexander's ego could only be fed by conquering Persia and so just ignored them

He was Phillip's fuckboy, the rape drama all resulted from their split.

>Philip and Pausanias had once been lovers, but the affair ended, and Philip started a new affair with Attalus' friend (also named Pausanias). The former Pausanias, feeling spurned, insulted his romantic rival in public. To secure his honor, Attalus' friend committed suicide by recklessly putting himself into danger in battle, while at the same time protecting the king. Devastated, Attalus sought to punish Pausanias of Orestis, and did so by getting the man drunk, and then submitting him to a rape. For any number of reasons, Philip did not punish Attalus. Pausanias of Orestis was promoted to the rank of somatophylax, probably as a consolation.[1]
