|1.Macedon son of Zeus and Thias daughter of Deukalion was the founder of Macedonia(Stef.Byzantios about "Macedonia")|
2. Karanos (8ος century b.c). Founder of the first Macedonian state acording to Theopombos and Diodoros. His capital was Aiges.
He was descendent from Timenos great grandson of Hercules King of Argos that moved from Argos and occupied the todays west Macedonian territory founding the Macedonian dynasty.
His descendents weree Kinos and Thourimas.
His dynasty rulled Macedonia for 72 years. According to other historians founder of the royal house of Macedonia was Perdikas also descendent from Timenos and the Argos royal family(Herodotus Η 137, Thoukidides ΙΙ 99, V 80) or Argeadas that also came from Argos.
So we see that all ancient historians agree that the first Macedonians came from Argos in the 8th century b.c and descendent from Hercules, the greatest and most well kniw of all Greek heroes and that is the most logical explanation why Macedonians has leader like Philip II and Alexander the Great .
