Storyboard Text

  • RIse of the Macedonians
  • The Greeks viewed the northern neighbors, the Macedonians, as barbarians. The Macedonians were actually rural people in groups but not in city-states like the Greeks.
  • However, by the end of the fifth century, B.C. Macedonia emerged powerful as a kingdom.
  • A great admirer of the Greek culture, Philip II wanted to unite all the Greek polis under Macedonia
  • The Athenians allied with other city-states fearing that Philip II would become a threat. The Macedonians crushed their army and they were left surprised. This took place in Thebes, 338 B.C. and was called the Battle of Chaeronea. 
  • Philip II quickly brought an end to the freedom of the Greek city-states. Having united Greece, he decided to form a league and go into war against the Persians.
  • Before being assassinated, Philip II tried to undertake an invasion on Asia. His son took over the mantle, Alexander would be known as the Great for accomplishing a lot like fulfilling his father's dream to invade the Persians.
