An opportunity presented itself in 317 BC when Cassander expelled Polyperchon from Macedonia.

Eurydice immediately allied herself with Cassander and persuaded her husband to nominate him as the new regent.

Philip and Eurydice had no choice but to escape, only to be captured at Amphipolis and thrown into prison.

In Renault's version, the villainous Cassander slows down his advance on Macedonia to give Olympias enough time to kill Arrhidaeus and Eurydice.

From that moment on, Philip Arrhidaeus was to be under the sway of his bride, a proud and determined woman bent on substantiating her husband's power. The regent died of natural causes the following year, nominating as his successor not his son Cassander, but his friend and lieutenant, Polyperchon.

Cassander's refusal to accept his father's decision sparked the Second War of the Diadochi, in which Eurydice saw once again a chance to free Philip from the control of the regent.
