The House of Ptolemy:
Genealogy of the Kings, Queens,
and the Rest of the Royal Ptolemies

  • New Item 16 May 2001 --- Egyptian Royal Genealogy: Ptolemies
    A Mastersite! An annotated genealogy of the Ptolemies, with links to available online sources by Chris Bennett. This is the home page for a larger genealogical project. Select the "Ptolemies" button to reach the actual Ptolemies page, which is the only one currently installed. For those of you who are already knowledgeable about the subject, you might want to proceed by selecting the HIGHLIGHTS button on the Ptolemies page. This is also something of an experiment in how such genealogies should be presented online, and Mr. Bennett thinks some of you may be interested in it from that viewpoint, even if the Ptolemies themselves are not of great interest to you. Any comments, suggestions, corrections, and ideas for additional material or improved organisation and presentation are welcome. All sites should be as good as this.
  • Additional information:
