Anab. 3. 26. 2). The soldiers, when the charges were first announced, were moved by the alteration in Philotas’ fortunes from cavalry commander to “damnatum” (Curt. 6. 9. 26). The evidence makes it clear that charging Philotas was entirely up to the king, who at any time could have pardoned him (see Curt. 6. 10. 11).

Since the succession was tied to membership in the clan and not a particular family, with no express rules for primogeniture, there was no formal process for the creation of regencies for an immature king.
