Flag of Macedon Macedon is a regional power in the Balkans, controlling much of Macedonia and parts of northern Greece. The ancient homeland of the Flag of Argead Empire Argead dynasty of Alexander the Great, Macedon begins the game under the rule of Kassandros I Antipatrid, son of the Flag of Argead Empire Argead regent Antipatros, having eliminated the remaining Argead claimants to declare himself king some years before. In 450 AUC Macedon is in a difficult position, facing the might of Flag of Phrygia Phrygia as it seeks to liberate Greece from Macedonian rule, though the alliance with Flag of Thrace Thrace and the self-interests of Flag of Egypt Egypt and the Flag of Seleukid Empire Seleukid Empire who do not want to see Flag of Phrygia Phrygia grow too powerful offers a path to victory that Macedon may be able to play. Historically, this coalition would prove sufficient to destroy Flag of Phrygia Antigonid power and lead to the collapse of their entire empire allowing Macedon to restore its hegemony over much of Greece, though infighting within the Antipatrid dynasty would see its downfall and the control of Macedon passing between the Flag of Phrygia Antigonid, Flag of Epirus Aiakadid, Flag of Thrace Lysimachid, and Flag of Egypt Ptolemaic dynasties before the complete collapse of the kingdom during the invasion of the Flag of Galatia Gauls. The kingdom would be restored a few years later under under the Antigonid dynasty, who would rule the kingdom until their overthrow in 168 BC at the hands of the Flag of Rome Romans and the eventual annexation in 146 BC.


Main article: Diadochi events

The Wars of the Diadochi[edit]

At start, all the Diadochi states will receive an event that gives them claims on all of the western half of the former Argead Empire, allowing them to easily declare war and conquer territory from each other. These claims will go away on the death of the first ruler.

Fourth War of the Diadochi[edit]

Shortly after the game starts, Macedon will be given an ultimatum by Flag of Phrygia Phrygia to surrender Korinthos (418), their last fortress in southern Greece, or face a resumption of war. If the demands are refused and war breaks out, after a few months Flag of Egypt Egypt and Flag of Seleukid Empire Seleukid Empire may join the fray, forcing Flag of Phrygia Phrygia to choose between conceding significant amounts of territory in the Levant - possibly including their capital - or face war against all of the other four Diadochi combined.


As a Hellenistic culture group monarchy, Macedon has access to the decision to reform the Flag of Argead Empire Argead Empire.


Reunite Alexander's Empire

For too long parasites and scavengers have made a feast of the Great Empire that Alexander spent a lifetime building. It is time we do away with all claimants, usurpers and delusional provincial strongmen. There can be only one authority within the empire of Alexander the Great, one upholder of the great Hellenistic legacy that this great man founded.

That one power could not possibly come from any dynasty but our own. Only a family that respects the Argead traditions can legitimately claim its legacy.

If it is destroyed, Macedon can be reformed by any country that either has Macedonian primary culture or The Aiakadid dynasty as the ruling family. At the start of the game, only Flag of Epirus Epirus and 20px Paeonia fulfill the conditions (as the other Diadochi states are considered on the same tier for the purposes of nation formable, though it is theoretically possible for one of them to form Macedon by losing most of their territory and forming 20px Cyprus first, as it is Tier 1 but has no tier restrictions itself). Macedon may also be reformed by successful revolter countries.
