Plutarch tells the story of how a 12-year old Alexander won the horse: A horse dealer offered the horse to Allexander's father, Philip II of Macedonia, for the enormous sum of 13 talents.

Bucephalus Bucephalus was Alexander the Great’s horse and is considered by some to be the most famous horse in history. Alexander and Bucephalus’ initial meeting was unique but demonstrated the true character of one of the greatest generals in all of history. Initially, Bucephalus was brought to Macedonia and presented to King Phillip II (Alexander’s father) in 346 BCE by Philoneicus of Thessaly. With a price tag almost three times the norm (13 talents), the beautiful black horse stood taller than the normal Macedonian steed but was considered too wild and unmanageable, rearing up against anyone who came near him. Phillip ordered him led away. Alexander sat in the audience with his mother Olympias watching the spectacle before him.
