Wellington was just 45 at Waterloo, Bonaparte was about the same age
Alexander was in his early 20's when he conquerored the known world. In his forties it would have been 'in a minute, im just going to have nap first. Yes, im aware the hedge needs cutting' etc etc.
Well, his dad was still a ferocious warrior at the age of 54, and preparing to invade Persia (boots were on the ground already inside the Achaemenid empire, he would probably follow soon) when murdered.
Caesar from his 51 to 56 th years fought a very intensive civil war against fellow Roman troops commanded by good generals, got himself into dire straits a few times (like fighting a in a civil war in Egypt with very few troops), casually defeated a large invading Pontic-Armenic army, quelled a mutiny amongst his veteran troops. Controlled Rome by writing letters while on campaign, forstered a child with Cleopatra VII, etc.... now that is some stamina.... I guess the man was done for the moment he could quitly settle in Rome with few things to do exept to try to hold on his power, i.e. when he had basically nothing to do, exept than trying to keep up the facade that he was absolutely NOT a dictator with unlimited powers....
