Alexander I Balas, who claimed to be the son of Antiochus IV Epiphanes (175-164 AC). Succeeded Demetrius I Soter, who was killed on the battlefield. He married Cleopatra Thea. With the help of Attalus II of Pergamum (160-139 AC.) And Ptolemy VI Philometor (180-145 AC.), He managed to keep five years in Syria before being overthrown and murdered. This is Demetrius II, who succeeded him.
