Ancient Macedonia

The author, a professor of ancient history in Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridksi”, presents a rather brief overview of ancient Macedonia’s history.

Described in a successive order are the early history of the Argead dynasty in the 7th – 6th century BC, the rules of Alexander I, Perdicas II and Archelaos in the 5th century BC, the crisis in the early decades of the 4th century, the impressive rise of the Macedonian kingdom under Philip II, the conquests of his son Alexander the Great, and the subsequent decline of his enormous empire.
