Antipatrid dynasty

The Antipatrid dynasty (/ænˈtɪpətrɪd/; Greek: Ἀντιπατρίδαι) was a Dorian Greek dynasty[1] of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon founded by Cassander, the son of Antipater, who declared himself King of Macedon in 302 BC. This dynasty did not last long; in 294 BC it was swiftly overthrown by the Antigonid dynasty.
