Ancient Macedonian kings – Philip I of Macedon

This monarch is said to have been wise and valiant; but nothing is recorded of the transactions of his reign, except
that he resisted the attacks of the Illyrians with great courage. According to some authors, he reigned thirty-five years, at
the end of which time he was slain in battle, leaving the crown to his infant son.
