The purpose of this thesis is to review the historical role of Kleopatra III and to restore her good name, as a woman and as a queen, lost in the pejorative assessment of ancient and modern historians. Particular emphasis is laid upon her place in Ptolemaic ruler cult, principally manifested through the dynastic Alexander Cult of the Ptolemies.
Table of ContentsThe Religious inventiveness of the Ptolemies and the place of the divine queen -- Divine and powerful queens -- Queen consort -- Queen regnant, Part 1 -- Queen regnant, Part 2 -- Kleopatra III in retrospect -- Conclusion : The proper place of Kleopatra III.
