The Minister of Culture denounced the Netflix series

“Netflix’s Alexander the Great series is ‘fantasy of extremely poor quality, low content and full of historical inaccuracies,'” Greece’s Culture Minister Lina Mendoni said on Wednesday, reports Kathimerini.

The series “The Making of a God” caused controversy in Greece because it touches on a sensitive subject, as it involves a homosexual relationship between Alexander the Great and Hephaestion.

“None of the elements of the personality of Alexander the Great are demonstrated in the show, which does not serve the historical truth,” Mendoni stressed while speaking in parliament, responding to a question from the leader of the Nike religious party Dimitris Natsios, who asked if the government planned to take action against the production.

“All elements of the personality of Alexander the Great are not highlighted in the Netflix series, which does not serve the historical truth,” the minister said, but added: “However, you must know that the concept of love in antiquity is broad and multidimensional.”

The discussion took place as parliament debates a law on same-sex marriage that is expected to be voted on today.
