Alexander the great - how did he secure his rule

For this reason it was very important for Alexander to secure the loyalty of Parmenion, who was also related to a possible candidate to the throne. Parmenion proved loyal and was rewarded by having members of his family found in key positions for years to come.

At the time of Philip's assassination in 336BC, Philip was married to Cleopatra and she bore a son called Amyntas, who was a possible heir to the throne. This problem to Alexander was believed to have been taken care of by his mother Olympus as she supposedly had both Cleopatra and Amyntas roasted over a fire while Alexander was away from Macedon.
