  • Background
    • Threats
      • Cleopatra's son would eventually have been considered heir - proper Macedonian
      • Princes of Lyncestis (that were involved in plot?) a threat
      • Attalus a threat - would rule for Cleopatra's son
      • League of Corinth could rebel - only just set up and could see Alexander as weak since young.
      • Thessaly did not seem to respect Alexander's authority
    • Removal of Threats
      • Olympias removes Cleopatra Eurydike and her son
      • Alexander sends for Attalus to be arrested, killed if resists. Parmenion steps aside
      • Princes of Lyncestis executed - near 'getaway' horse on death of Philip
