Historical background


SYRIA - Seleucid Kingdom - ANTIOCHUS IX Cyzicenus

(113-95 BC)

First reign (114-112 avant J.-C.)

Antiochus IX, the son of Antiochus VII and Cleopatra Thea was raised to Cyzicus, hence its nickname. His half-brother, Antiochus VIII, tried to assassinate him in 116 BC and the next twenty years were a continuous series of civil wars. Antioch will be taken and retaken four times. Antiochus, who took the title of king and Philopator (who loves his father) in 113 BC, married Cleopatra is murdered by his own sister, Cleopatra Tryphème wife of Antiochus VIII. The following year, when it will resume Antioch, Antiochus IX will run her sister for revenge. A truce was signed the following year it will last five years. Fratricidal war resumed in 106 BC, Antiochus VIII was assassinated in 96 BC, and his eldest son Seleucus VI succeeded him. The following year, Antiochus IX, defeated, killed himself not to fall alive into the hands of his nephew, a beautiful story of family.
