Amphipolis is on a distinguished road

Actually, Philip's ancestry is not so complicated or unclear. His father was 50% German, 25% Danish and 25% Russian and his mother was 75% German and 25% Britsh. So Philip's ancestry was not Greek at all. Through his small British ancestry he was actually a third cousin of his wife, Queen Elisabeth.

Furthermore, while his father DID have a strong Greek conscience, Philip was practically abandoned and grew up (fatherless and motherless) in a foreign country, raised as British.
