Cleopatra Selene

(fl. c. 40 BC–11/7 AD)
   Daughter of Marcus Antonius and Cleopatra VII. She was born in 40 BC with her twin brother, AlexanderHelios. She was captured by Augustus in 30 BC and displayed in his triumph in Rome in 29 BC. She was brought up by Octavia, the sister of Augustus and Roman wife of Antonius, and married to King Juba II of Mauretania (modern Morocco) around 20 BC. Cleopatra Selene may have acted as regent for her husband during his absences from the kingdom, and she appears on his coinage. She had at least one son, King Ptolemy of Mauretania, who was executed by Caligula in 40 AD and is the last known descendant of the Ptolemaic dynasty.
