Ptolemy X Alexander I

(c. 140–88 BC)
   Younger son of Ptolemy VIII and Cleopatra III. He was his mother’s choice as ruler in 116 BC but was forced to acknowledge his elder brother, Ptolemy IX. Later king of Cyprus, he ousted his elder brother in 107 BC and reigned in Egypt with his niece, Cleopatra Berenice III, as consort until they were expelled by a popular revolt in 89 BC. He returned with Syrian forces but was again expelled to Lycia. He was killed in a battle at sea in March 88 BC as he attempted to flee to Cyprus.
