About Philip V, king of Macedon

Philip V (Greek: Φίλιππος Ε΄) (238–179 BC) was King of Macedon from 221 to 179 BC. Philip's reign was principally marked by an unsuccessful struggle with the emerging power of Rome. Philip was attractive and charismatic as a young man. A dashing and courageous warrior, he was inevitably compared to Alexander the Great and was nicknamed the beloved of all Greece (Greek: "ἐρώμενος τῶν Ἑλλήνων") because he became, as Polybius put it, "...the beloved of all Hellenes for his charitable inclination".
