Macedon is a sub-faction of the Successor Kingdom faction featured in Total War: Rome II. Hailing from the great military of Alexander, Macedon was the leader of military tactics. The feared Pezhetairos, Hetairoi, and Hyspastist changed the landscape of warfare. Macedon can field the sturdy Foot Pikeman, the powerful Companion Cavalry, and the Shield Bearer.
