#97 – Cratesipolis

Cassander needs to act quickly to stablise his territories in Greece. So in the summer of 315, while Antigonus is still busy laying siege to Tyre, he re-invades the Peloponnese with the help of 50 of Ptolemy’s ships. Then he sends his most trusted general Prepelaus south to do a deal with Alexander, flipping him away from Antigonus. He was named “General of the Peloponnese” – which is also the title his father holds. Which makes seating arrangements at Christmas dinner a real bitch. But the household staff don’t need to worry long, because Alexander doesn’t survive long. In his stead, there rises another kickass Macedonian woman – his wife, known to history only as Cratesipolis.
