Cleopatra Tryphaena

(d. 112 BC)
   Daughter of Ptolemy VIII and Cleopatra III. She married her first cousin, Seleucid king Antiochus VIII Grypus, son of Demetrius II and Cleopatra Thea, but he faced a rival in his half brother, Antiochus IX Cyzicenus, who was married to Cleopatra IV, sister of Cleopatra Tryphaena. When Cleopatra IV was captured in 113 BC, she was executed at her sister’s behest. Cleopatra Tryphaena was then herself killed when she fell into the hands of Antiochus IX in 112 BC.
