Epic Rap Battles of History have released a new video, pitting the king of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon, Alexander the Great, against the Grand Prince of Moscow from the sixteenth century, Ivan the Terrible. Also featured are three other Greats: Frederick the Great, Pompey the Great, and Catherine the Great.

The speed and execution of this rap battle prove to be one of their best of the season, with Catherine the Great giving some of the best lines against Ivan the Terrible, such as, "This whole battle's like Alaska, cause I settled it." Alexander the Great, portrayed by Zach Sherwin, who also played Stephen King in Season 3, also delivered some great zingers against the Grand Prince like "You died in the middle of a game of chess / You got vodka bars, flavorless."

“Alexander the Great vs Ivan the Terrible” is available on Amazon.
