Alexandria is a major city in Egypt.



Founded by the ancient Greek explorer Alexander the Great, Alexandria was intended as the succession of the city of Naucratis as a link betwixt Greece and the verdant Nile valley, though another Egyptian city, named Rhakotis, already existed in that area and went on to become the Egyptian district for Alexandria. Not but a few months after its completion, Alexander the Great left Alexandria, never to return. Within the city itself was the Library of Alexandria, where all books or texts taken into Egypt were brought and copied as part of its archives, with the exception of the Scrolls of Thebes.

Years later, Jonathan Carnahan and Alexander O'Connell visited the city, hoping to tour it when a sudden earthquake destroyed at least one building: the Library.
