Ptolemy I, Pharoah of Egypt and half-brother of Alexander the Great #52ancestors

Greek: Πτολεμαῖος
Ptolemy the first was the son of Philip the second and brother of Alexander the Great. He was also the ancestor of Cleopatra, the last queen of Egypt, and the founder of the Ptolemaic dynasty....

Ptolemy I Soter I (Ancient GreekΠτολεμαῖος ΣωτήρPtolemaĩos Sōtḗr, i.e. Ptolemy (pronounced /ˈtɒləmi/) the Savior), also known as Ptolemy Lagides,[1] c. 367 BC – c. 283 BC, was a Greek Macedonian general under Alexander the Great, who became ruler of Egypt (323–283 BC) and founder of both the Ptolemaic Kingdom and the Ptolemaic Dynasty. In 305/4 BC he demanded the title ofpharaoh.
His mother was Arsinoe of Macedon, and, while his father is unknown, ancient sources variously describe him either as the son of Lagus, a Greek Macedonian nobleman, or as an illegitimate son of Philip II of Macedon (which, if true, would have made Ptolemy the half-brother of Alexander), but it is possible that this is a later myth fabricated to glorify the Ptolemaic Dynasty. Ptolemy was one of Alexander's most trusted generals, and was among the seven somatophylakes (bodyguards) attached to his person. He was a few years older than Alexander, and had been his intimate friend since childhood.
