Amyntas was the son of Perdikkas III and a nephew of Philip II. He was the rightful heir to the kingdom of Macedonia at the time of his father's death (360/59 bce), but he was too young to reign: for this reason, the Macedonians chose his uncle Philip, who acted either as regent or directly as king. Philip II kept Amyntas alive. After Philip's death, in the late summer of 336 bce, Alexander, the new king, killed his cousin Amyntas, on the grounds of having plotted a conspiracy against him.

Abstract

Amyntas was the son of Perdikkas III and a nephew of Philip II. He was the rightful heir to the kingdom of Macedonia at the time of his father's death (360/59 bce), but he was too young to reign: for this reason, the Macedonians chose his uncle Philip, who acted either as regent or directly as king. Philip II kept Amyntas alive. After Philip's death, in the late summer of 336 bce, Alexander, the new king, killed his cousin Amyntas, on the grounds of having plotted a conspiracy against him.
