Ptolomeo XI.

Ptolomeo XI Alejandro II[1] (Griego: Πτολεμαίος Αλέξανδρος), rey de la dinastía Ptolemaica de Egipto durante algunos días del año 80 a. C.

Era hijo de Ptolomeo X Alejandro I y de Cleopatra Selene I.

A la muerte de su tio Ptolomeo IX Latiro, Roma presionó para lograr su acceso al trono. También se le exigió que se casara con su madrastra, Berenice III, pero la hizo asesinar poco después de la boda. El pueblo de Alejandría, indignado por este hecho, lo linchó.

Le sucedió Ptolomeo XII Auletes.

Notas [editar]

  1. Los egiptólogos discrepan en el número de Lágidas que tras la muerte de Ptolomeo VI llegaron a reinar realmente y en el número que le dan a cada uno de ellos como rey. Para evitar la confusión que esto causa, los Ptolomeos se pueden identificar inequívocamente mediante los epítetos griegos que se les atribuyeron (Sóter II, Alejandro II, Filópator, Neo-Dioniso, etc.).

Numbering the Ptolemies is a modern invention; the Greeks distinguished them by nickname. The number given here is the present consensus; but there has been some disagreement in the nineteenth century about which of the later Ptolemies should be counted as reigning. Older sources may give a number one higher or lower, but the same epithet.

Ptolemy XI Alexander II (Πτολεμαῖος Ἀλέξανδρος, Ptolemaĩos Aléxandros) was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty who ruled Egypt for a few days in 80 BC.

Ptolemy XI was born to Ptolemy X Alexander and either Cleopatra Selene or Berenice III. Ptolemy IX Lathryos died in 81 BC or 80 BC, leaving no legitimate heir, and so Cleopatra Berenice (another name of Berenice III) ruled alone for a time. However, Rome's Sulla wanted a pro-Roman ruler on the throne, and sent the young son of Ptolemy X to Egypt, displaying Ptolemy Alexander's will in Rome as justification for this obvious intervention.

The will also required Ptolemy XI to marry Cleopatra Berenice, who was his stepmother and half-sister (or possibly his natural mother - the ancient sources are unclear). However, nineteen days after the marriage, Ptolemy murdered his bride for unknown reasons, an unwise move since Berenice was very popular; Ptolemy was immediately lynched by the citizens of Alexandria.

He was succeeded by Ptolemy XII.
