Historical background


UNITED THRACE - I RHOÉMÉTALCÈS

(11 BC - 12 AD)

Rhoémétalcès I, Pythodoris and Auguste

Rhoémétalcès is the son of Kotys and was the guardian of children Kotys III. It was Auguste who entrusted him in 11 BC the entire kingdom of Thrace, where he reigned for nearly twenty-five years. He remained loyal ally of the Romans and besides himself or his wife Pythodoris, he represented his patron Augustus and his wife Livia on his coinage. At his death in 12 AD, Augustus divided the kingdom between the son of Rhoémétalcès, Kotys IV and III Rheskouporis source of a conflict that was to end with the assassination of the former by the latter. Finally, the kingdom of Thrace became a Roman province in 46.
