Macedon Philip V and Perseus were consecutive Macedon Kings. Philip V was mostly known for his struggles with Rome. The son of Demtrius II and Chryseis, he was a handsome, dashing and courageous warrior. After losing the Second Macedonian War at the Battle of Cynoscephalae, the treaty with Rome require the payment of 100 talents indemnity, the surrender of the Macedonian fleet, plus surrendering hostages to Rome including his son Demtrius. Philip V sent help to Rome in their other future battles. In return Rome forgave any further indemnity, and freed his son Demtrius. Perseus became king of Macedon after the death of Phiip V in 179 BC. Philip V had poisoned his son Demtrius (with encouragement from Perseus) for being to Pro-Roman. The Romans had favored Demtrius and Perseus and Roman were soon at war ( third Macedonian War ) which ended with Perseus’ defeat at the Battle of Pydna and Macedon became a province of Rome.
