This is a list of individuals known as "The Great". The are no rules governing this type of nomenclature. Often times, Kings and Emperors would refer to themselves as "The Great". Sometimes the title was awarded posthumously, as was likely the case with Alexander the Great. It's up to you then to decide if this list of the greats is truly comprised of "great" people.
