The Illyrian Campaign was the conquest of the Kingdom of Illyria by Alexander the Great in 334 BC.


Advised to do so by his general Parmenion, Alexander the Great led his army into Illyria and attacked the army of King Glaukias. Alexander suffered heavy losses due to the large use of cavalry by Glaukias' army, and his troops were overrun quickly, but his Hypaspists cut down the charging cavalry and counterattacked.
