Amyntas I (sixth century bce), son of Alketas and father of Alexander I, known as the Philhellene, is the first truly historic figure of the kings of Macedonia. Amyntas ruled at the time when the Persian general Megabazos defeated the Paionians in about 512 bce, and at Megabazos’ request became a Persian vassal. The king is supposed to have been a friend of the Peisistratids and is assumed to have died in about 498.
