Cassander, the first of the Epigones, succeeded his father, Antipater, in 319 BC. He allied himself in 315 with Seleucus, Ptolemy and Lysimachus to fight Antigone and Demetrius. In 311 BC, he killed Roxane and Alexander IV. In 305 BC, he assumed the title of king. Cassander triumphed over Antigone at Ipsos where the latter died. He was killed in 297 BC with his son Philip IV and it was his son Antigone Gonatas who finally succeeded him in 283 BC on the death of Demetrius Poliorcetes.
