Perdiccas III was king of Macedonia from 365 to 359 BC, succeeding his brother Alexander II.

Son of Amyntas III and Eurydike, he was underage when Alexander II was killed by Ptolemy of Aloros, who then ruled as regent. Perdiccas killed him and took the throne himself.

Perdiccas was killed in a battle against Bardylis, and was succeeded by his infant son, Amyntas IV. The throne was soon usurped by Perdiccas's younger brother Philip II.
