"Alexander the Great vs Ivan the Terrible" is a rap battle from the internet series Epic Rap Battles of History. It starts with a duel between the Macedonian king Alexander the Great and the Russian Tsar Ivan the Terrible, which ends with Ivan convincing Alexander the Great to drink poison, killing him. He is then challenged by the Prussian king Frederick the Great who ends up being killed by Ivan too; he is later challenged by Pompey the Great who gets murdered before he could sing, and finally by the Russian empress Catherine the Great.

The song was performed by Nice Peter as Ivan the Terrible, Zach Sherwin as Alexander the Great, EpicLLOYD as Frederick the Great, Mike Bessette as Pompey the Great, and Meghan Tonjes as Catherine the Great.


[Epic Rap Battles of History!]
[Alexander the Great!]
[Ivan the Terrible!]

Look alive
Crème de la Kremlin's arriving
Try to serve Ivan
No surviving
You're a land rover, I'm a land expander
Here to hand you your first loss, Alexander
I'll school you like Aristotle
Smack you harder than you hit that bottle
You're nothing but an overrated lush, I'll crush ya
I'm the first Tsar of all of Russia
You're an asshole with an anastole
I'm heaven sent, divine and holy
So don't even try to approach the God
Or you'll get a huge sack like Novgorod

Hey fella, swell diss
But now you got the Panhellenist from Pella hella pissed
Stepping up's foolish as well as useless
Little Vasilyevich, let me spell out the list
I brought foes to their knees in Phoenicia
Breezed through Gaza to Giza
Had the Balkans, Persia, Syria, Iraq and Pakistan
In my expansion pack
While you died in the middle of a game of chess
You got vodka bars, flavorless
And what I'm about to spit will be the craziest
So go fix me a drink so I can stay refreshed
Kudos! Greek for the glory I got
From winning every single war that I fought
So this will be straight forward, I'll take up this sword that I brought
And slice you in half like the Gordian knot
And I'll soar to the top like the eagle whose feather I would sport in the helmet that I wore
As I swatted my many enemies, shattered 'em like a porcelain pot
And they'd be praying for the torture to stop
But I would leave 'em contorted and they'd be screaming and roaring
Until their vocal chords were torn up and shot
And I would holler Bucephalus!
Hop on my horsey and trot
I win Ivan, I vanquish
I'm an immortal, you're not

[I don't stand a chance against your skills]
[на здоровье] {To health}
[A drink to your victory]

[Yes, I will]
[It seems no one can defeat me]
[I weep, it's all so easy]

[What's wrong?]

[I feel a bit queasy]

Ha! You've been poisoned!

[Oh, the pain is unbearable!]
[My stomach's riddled with holes!]

[Ugh, I'm terrible]
[There's no great who could defeat this Russian]

[Psst, what about a flute busting Prussian?]

(Old Fritz, old fritz!
Old Fritz, old fritz!
Old Fritz, old fritz!
Old Fritz, old fritz!)

I'm Frederick the Great, out the gate first servant of state
Oblique attack tactics ain't exactly straight
I've got creative talents and battle malice
Hard as steel on the field, genteel in the palace
Russia's f*cked up but no wonder why
With your tundras and taigas and bears, oh my!
I would pay a guy to tear out my eyes
If I had to look at your troll face every night
Now bring me my chair
I'm weary from tearing you a new derrière from here to Red square
Fought a Seven Years' War, I ain't scared of a Tsar
Cause beating you only took me twelve bars

Oh, what a humiliating defeat!
I know when I am beat
So of course, take a seat

[I'd keep ripping you to shreds]
[But I'll take a break instead]
[And just rest my little head]

[Why don't you drop dead, Fred?!]
Hmm, my expectations were a lot higher
But at least I saved the rubles on the garrote wire
It's another great day and another great victory
Cause no great can beat me

What about me?
Pompey! Yeah!

Macedonians, Prussians and Romans
Those aren't worthy opponents
It takes a Russian to take down a Russian
I'm Cath, I'm a cat, you're a rodent
How are you the head of our state
When the state of your head was such a crazy one?
Such sick sh*t going through your brain
That you stuck a spike through your own son (Oooh)
You're unbalanced like I unbalanced the European powers with the wars I waged
I brought the Russian empire straight out of the olden days and right into the golden age
I'm the boss bitch that you just can't meddle with
This whole battle's like Alaska cause I settled it

Hmm, what a beautiful Queen to beat me in a battle
Accept this gift, Your Highness: I hear you enjoy the saddle

That horse story is a pile of sh*t
Though I do keep 'em chomping at the bit
But you're never gonna get it, nyet
Couldn't spin in my chamber if this were Russian roulette
I'm picking up where Peter the Great left off
Bringing sexy back to House Romanov
So don't call me Queen, I'm far more great
Empress to Tsar 8, bitch

[Who won?]
[Who's next?]
[You decide!]
[Rap Battles of History!]
