Ptolemaic dynasty

Ptolemy I Soter, one of Alexander the Great's generals, established himself in Egypt as pharaoh after the death of Alexander, and his family ruled Egypt from 323 BC until the Roman conquest in 31 BC.

All the male rulers of the dynasty took the name "Ptolemy". The most famous member of the line was the last Ptolemaic pharaoh, Cleopatra VII.
