This storyboard does not have a description.
I am King Philip II here to celebrate the wedding of Alexander of Epirus to Cleopatra. Let the festivities begin!
Philip invited many Greeks to attend the festivities. He ensure they thought he was a pleasant man.
WE MUST ALL CELEBRATE THIS BEAUTIFUL UNION!
Mid applause of King Philips entrance, Pausanias stabbed him "right through the ribs" (Diodorus) with a Celtic dagger.
Diodorus said that Philip entered "wearing a white cloak." And ordered his body guards to follow "at some distance from him, as an indication to everyone that he needed no protection of guards."
Pausanias fled the crime scene to reach his horse, however he tripped on the way there.
I'm a vine. Yay! :)
Oh no! I'm going to fall over and die!
Pausanias was stabbed to death by the body guards of King Philip in revenge for what he did. Alexander the Great was immediately crowned the King of Macedon as he was the next heir.
