Following the death of Alexander the Great, his empire was divided among his three generals with Ptolemy I Soter ultimately claiming Egypt for himself and his successors. This dynasty would be one of the most fundamental to the Hellenistic period and would flourish until the fall to Rome in the late 1st Century BCE. Ptolemy II ruled as co-regent with his father for a short time before his sole reign. He was then succeeded by his son with Arsinoe I, Ptolemy III.
