Philip III was the half-brother of Alexander the Great -- and was an illigeitmate, half-wit as well. He never ruled by hiimself, instead the reins of control were held by Antepater, Perdyccas and Krateros on his behalf.

He was murdered at the behest of his grandmother, Queen Olympias and the throne was passed to the son of Alexander the Great, Alexander IV.
