*Project requested by user/ MrCol52 The famed father of Alexander the Great, Philip II (382 BC - 336 BC), Philip II was crowned King of Macedon in 359, and was a fierce military general who in his lifetime conquered many of the neighboring lands surrounding Macedonia before conquering Greece in August 338. He was on the move to conquer Persia in 336 but was assassinated before he could do so. Philip's son, Alexander the Great, succeeded him as the next ruler of Macedonia.
*There are almost no physical descriptions of Philip II in history except for the mention of his missing eye (lost 18 years before his death in battle) and his full beard.
*As recently as November 2000, the skull that was believed to have been Philip II (from which a famous reconstruction was built) is now believed to be that of one of his sons, and Alexander the Great's half brother.
