DID ALEXANDER THE GREAT DIE FROM DRINK?

I have heard that Lord Eldon, who died at the age of 87, and who certainly suffered neither "downfall" nor "ruin," was accustomed to drink a bottle of port wine after his dinner every day, except on Sundays, when his brother, Lord Stowell, dined with him, and they each drank two.
