Alexander V (d.294 BC) was the son of Cassander who, along with his brother Antipater ruled as King of Macedon from 297 to 294 BC. Eventually, he was ousted by his brother, and turned to Demetrius I Poliorcetes for help in recovering his throne. Demetrius was successful in defeating Antipater, but instead of restoring Alexander, Demetrius had him murdered.
