Ancient Macedonian kings – Argaeus I of Macedon

 

Argaeus was a mild and beneficient prince, and governed his people with applause. In his reign, the Illyrians, a fierce and barbarous nation, invaded the Macedonians, and caused them much alarm; but Argaeus having by a stratagem drawn
them into his power, fell upon them, and put them to the sword with great slaughter. Argaius ruled’over Macedonia thirty-two years, when he died, and left the kingdom to Philip I.
