As Alexander the Great’s huge empire broke into pieces after his death in 323 BC and was divided among his generals, the Diadochi, Seleucus was able to secure the largest part by far. The arising kingdom, which entered the history books as the Seleucid Empire, referring to its founder, existed for almost 250 years.

In its late phase, the former huge empire had shrunk to a petty state in Syria and was torn by internecine conflicts. Philip I, who was regarded as the last independent ruler, had to defend his reign in several bloody civil wars against his four brothers. His son Philip II, who was merely a client king tolerated by Rome, was the last Seleucid ruler before the former empire was annexed by the Romans in 63 BC and merged into the Roman province of Syria.
