Alexander, who is initially disgusted with his brother's inferior intellect, learns to love him before he sets out to conquer the world.

He appears as one of the main characters in the novel Funeral Games by Mary Renault.In Renault's version, the villainous Cassander slows down his advance on Macedonia to give Olympias enough time to kill Arrhidaeus and Eurydice.Plutarch was of the view that he became disabled by means of an attempt on his life by Philip II's wife, Queen Olympias, who wanted to eliminate a possible rival to her son, Alexander, through the employment of pharmaka (drugs/spells); however, most modern authorities doubt the truth of this claim., both to protect his life and to prevent his use as a pawn in any prospective challenge for the throne.After Alexander's death in Babylon in 323 BC, the Macedonian army in Asia proclaimed Arrhidaeus as king; however, he served merely as a figurehead and as the pawn of a series of powerful generals.Arrhidaeus is also a main character in Annabel Lyon's novel The Golden Mean.

In it, the young Arrhidaeus is tutored by Aristotle while he also mentors his younger half-brother, the future Alexander the Great.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.That same year, Polyperchon and Olympias allied with her cousin, Aeacides, king of Epirus, and invaded Macedonia.The Macedonian troops refused to fight Olympias, the mother of Alexander.It was immediately decided that Philip Arrhidaeus would reign, but not rule: this was to be the prerogative of the new regent, Perdiccas.
