Philip began his rise to power in Macedonia when he was “caretaker” for the previous king’s under-age son, his nephew, but it is clear that his own successes secured his position as ruler. Philip’s accomplishments made him feel so secure, in fact, that he allowed the young Amyntas, the heir to the kingship by blood, to continue to live as part of the family. If Philip’s achievements had not been enough to overcome Amyntas’ hereditary claim 15 – Alexander the Great – to rule, the violent rules of competition in Macedonian royal politics would have required that one of the two had to die – and Philip clearly believed it would have been the boy.
Now the knife came out. An accusation of “conspiracy in the murder of the king” was all the excuse Alexander needed to kill anyone who might stand in the way of his kingship. Among the first to die was Attalus. He had arranged 41 – Alexander the Great – the outrage that drove Pausanias to kill Philip, but his real crimes were drunkenly insulting Alexander’s legitimacy at the wedding banquet for Philip and, now, his reported plotting to overthrow the new king. Alexander’s agents found Attalus stationed in northwestern Anatolia with his fellow general and father-in-law Parmenion and the advance forces of the Macedonian army.
Alexander continued throughout his life the quest for all kinds of knowledge that he began during his time with Aristotle. Alexander used to say that he loved Aristotle more than he loved Philip because, while he was living thanks to Philip, he was living with excellence thanks to Aristotle. While studying with Aristotle, Alexander focused above all on learning the principles of how to go beyond everyone else in personal excellence. To serve this goal, Aristotle taught Alexander two notions that few people accepted even as theory and even fewer put into practice in their lives.
