 Macedonia FAQ: A Concise History of Macedonia
Alexander’s son Perdiccas II (453-413 BC) worked on starting a war between the Athens maritime power and Sparta which lead the Peloponnesian League (Thucyd.Pel.I.57), and initiated the creation of an Olynthian league from the Greek colonies neighboring Macedonia on Chalcidice, for a war against Athens (Thucyd.I.58).
During the Peloponnesian War, Perdiccas II is one moment on the side of Athens and the next on the side of Sparta, depending of Macedonia’s best interests, not wanting either of them to become too powerful, while keeping its country’s sovereignty at the expense of the Greek quarrel.
But Perdiccas III was killed with his Macedonian soldiers in a battle with the Illyrians, and Amyntas' third son, Philip II (later the Great) now became the next Macedonian king.

The Athenians, who backed a pretender (Argaeus) were defeated in a skirmish near Aegae but wooed by the return of their prisoners (and by his hints that he would recognize their claims to Amphipolis).
He was interred at Aegae (many believe, in the splendid barrel-vaulted Tomb II in the Great Tumulus of Vergina), leaving his kingdom a military and economic giant but internally almost as distracted as it had been at his accession.
