Philip V of Macedon

Background

His cousin, Antigonus Doson, administered the kingdom as regent till his death in 221-220, when Phil1p was eighteen years old Philip now ascended the throne and reigned till 179. His reign was occupied in the vain struggle to maintain the old Macedonian supremacy in the Balkan Peninsula, which became hopeless after the intervention of Rome and the decisive battle of Cynoscephalae (197).
