Alexander's father, King Philip II , was assassinated when Alexander was about twenty years old, making him King Alexander III. The full circumstances of his father's death were never established but there were rumors that Alexander and his mother had been implicated.

When Alexander the great was 13, Philip hired the Greek philosopher Aristotle to be Alexander’s personal tutor.  
Aristotle gave Alexander a training in rhetoric and literature and stimulated his interest in science, medicine, and philosophy, all of which became of importance in Alexander’s later life.
In 340, when Philip assembled a large Macedonian army and invaded Thrace, he left his 16 years old son with the power to rule Macedonia in his absence as regent, which shows that even at such young age Alexander was recognized as quite capable.
