Encyclopedia > Antigonid dynasty

The Antigonid dynasty was a dynasty of Macedonian kings descended from Alexander the Great's general Antigonus I Monophthalmus ("the One-eyed"). Antigonus himself ruled mostly over Asia Minor and northern Syria. His attempts to take control of the whole of Alexander's empire led to his defeat and death at the Battle of Ipsus in 301 BC. Antigonus's son Demetrius I Poliorcetes survived the battle, and managed to seize control of Macedon itself a few years later, but eventually lost his throne, dying in prison. After a period of confusion, Demetrius's son Antigonus II Gonatas was able to establish the family's control over the old Kingdom of Macedon, as well as over most of the Greek city_states, by 276 BC.


It was one of three such empires, the others being the Seleucid dynasty and Ptolemaic dynasty. The dynasty ended with the Roman domination of the area after the Battle of Pydna in 168 BC.
