King Philip II of Macedonia (came in power in 359 B.C.) dreamed about conquering southern Greek city-states. He had built a powerful army and combined his military power with diplomacy and machinations like bribery and threats. That way he managed to convince many Greek city-states to ally with him. He conquered those who rejected him. Athens and Thebes waged a war against Philip II but he had ultimately defeated them at the battle of Chaeronea in 338 B.C. which resulted in Macedon domination over Greek city-states.
