I don't remember all of it, but here it goes:

When Alexander the Great was traveling to ?, he heard of a puzzle in which the solver would rule the world (?)
He went to where the puzzle was. A priest or guardian of the Knot told him "Whomever unties the knot shows intelligence to become........." (or words to that extent)
Alexander examined the knot, drew his sword, and cut it in half.
Does this help?

When you can take the pea from my hand, then you may leave the temple.

Cool story. This is a legend I have yet to hear. I'm assuming there is no historical backing of this story what so ever?
