To the end of ancient egypt's glorious era as an empire , Alexandria and in arabic El Iskandariya was one of the ancient world's centers of learning . Ordered built by Alexander The Great . By his architect Dinocrates , However the city's foundation had already been laid out , Thousand of years before . It became the trade center of the mediterranean and quickly grew into a metropplis that served as capital of egypt for the Ptolemies ( Greek Mulattos ) . During the reign of Ptolemy 1 , It was already established as the Captital Of Egypt . The Ptolematic period was the greatest trade period during ancient times .

In Alexandria , Hellenistic Culture And Art was prominent . Like present day Alexandria . The city extended along the sea , In The Ptolematic period , The Estern Mediterranean was the center of the ancient world's political economical life . Alexandria contained an excellent harbor and was a land rich in agriculture though it was large . Populous , And wealthy , The most famous thing about Alexandria was the great library located there . This library and its learning complex was called by the latins ; Museum , '' It was one of the scholl that stored The Highest Knowldge For Humans , This Knowledge Was Possessed By The Modern Society Of The Caucasians . Here, The Sciences , Mathematics , Technology , Time Calculations , And Medicine Flourished Untampered Until The Greek , Having already forced their way into egypt , Eventually destroyed this great library . These Greek stole what knowledge and records they wanted to preserve for themselves , ( And Burned The Rest ) . Today . The many Theiries , Mathematical Formulas , Techological Advances , Etc ,

That the caucasian teaches you were developed by him came right from The Libraries At Alexandria , Egypt and Baghdad , Iraq . Reference to any Book or Encycelopedia on Greece , Egypt , or Ancient Civilization will ptove it because people . calling themselves Philosophers and Scholars left Europe and came to Egypt sneaking around puting down on paper , Everything that they saw and heard then . He devoted himself to stealing the knowldge . Alexandria's prosperity lasted for nine centures . , It lost its importance as a seaport after the Turkish Conquest Of Egypt .

I thought Alexandria was not in Egypt - it was called 'Alexandria BY Egypt'.

Alexandria IS in Egypt. Ever heard of the lighthouse of Alexandria? Anyway, it was founded by the macidonian Alexander the Great, and leaders often named their cities by the female forms of their name(Alexander=Alexandria) Alexander the Great conqured Egypt, and made Aalexandria. After he died, his general, or adviser, i forgot which, took the throne. his name was, Ptolemy. and that started the Ptolmatic regin.

It is in Egypt. It flourished *under* the Ptolemies, so I find it hard to believe that it wasn't in Ptolemaic Egypt.

Untrue. Julius Caesar, in defending the city from a Greek invasion, had several of his ships in the harbor burned, to make the harbor unusable for any invasion. The fire got out of control and the Library was burned. The Greeks did not "pillage the library and burned the building".

As far as I know, there was no "legal technicality" in assuming Alexandria was not part of Egypt. Psus is correct--the city was Egyptian.

I am certain I have it called 'by Egypt'. When Alexandria was founded it was a Greek city and at the time most Greek cities were independant or semi independant city states which could be why it was BY Egypt not IN.

Alexandria in middle Ages?

It was before the Ottoman Era. Then you can search for "Mameluke Era" in Google. ;)
