Ptolemy VI King of the Ptolemaic Kingdom from 180 BC to 145 BC.
Ptolemaios VI 'Philometer' was king of Ptolemaic Egypt from 180 to 145 BC.

He ascended to the throne in 180 BC at the age of about 6, and ruled jointly with his mother, Cleopatra I, until her death in 176 BC, which is what 'Philometor' implies; "he who loves his mother".

In 173 BC he married his sister, Cleopatra II. He had at least four children with her: Ptolemy Eupator, Ptolemy Neos, Cleopatra Thea and Cleopatra III, and possibly Berenice.
