Amyntas I of Macedon

Amyntas I (Greek: Ἀμύντας Aʹ, c. 540–498 BC) was a king of Macedon. He was a son of Alcetas I of Macedon. He married Eurydice and they had a son Alexander. Amyntas was a tributary vassal of Darius I, king of the Persian Achaemenid Empire. The history of Macedon may be said to begin with Amyntas' reign. He was the first of its rulers to have diplomatic relations with other states.
