The banner of Makedonia

Makedonia (English: Macedonia) is a region in Northern Greece that, following the succession of its king Alexander III, unified Greece and conquered the Achaemenid Empire of Persia.

History

Peloponnesian War

At the time of the Peloponnesian War, the seminal Macedonia was notable only for the small village of Potidaia and the city of Amphipolis, which played vital roles at the beginning and end of the Peloponnesian War respectively. The economy of the sparsely populated region then was dominated by silver mining.[1]

Around 422 BCE, Darius, the Persian assassin of Xerxes I, sought refuge in Makedonia with his son Natakas, while they were on the run from the Order of the Ancients.[2]

Alexander's reign

During the reign of Alexander III, the Kingdom of Macedon rose dominate Greece and became a powerful empire that spanned the ancient world. Backed by proto-Templars, who entrusted Alexander with a Staff and Trident of Eden, the young king became a legendary, undefeated general.[3][4][5]

Following Alexander's assassination by the proto-Assassin Iltani in 323 BCE,[6][7] the Trident was split into three prongs. Two of the prongs were taken by Alexander's generals, Seleucus and Ptolemy, while the final one was sent to Makedonia.[5]

Roman Macedonia

In 42 BCE, armies under the command of Marcus Antonius and Octavian clashed with those of the Hidden Ones Brutus and Cassius at the Battle of Philippi, and Cassius was killed in the ensuing battle. Faced with inevitable defeat, Brutus fled and committed suicide shortly thereafter.[8]

Following Brutus' death, his fellow Hidden Ones gathered in Philippi and attempted to resurrect him with the Shroud of Eden to no avail. Brutus only opened his eyes and moved without breathing, subsequently falling still in a seeming second death.[8][9]

Regions

Makedonia was made up of four regions:
