I am King Philip II of Macedon, son of King Amyntas III, founder of the Unified Macedonian state.
I received a diplomatic and military education from Epaminondas and established a federation of Greek states known as the league of Corinth. I reformed the Ancient Macedonian Army and established the Macedonian Phalanx.
As a teen, I may have had an older male lover, a general I lived with named Pammenes.
Over the course of my life, I married seven times. One of my wives, Olympias, gave me a son. I named him Alexander. He was born the year my horse won the Olympic Games. Alexander is now 13.
