Ptolemy XIII Theos Philopator (lived 62 BCE/61 BCE–January 13, 47 BCE?, reigned from 51 BCE) was one of the last members of the Ptolemaic dynasty of Egypt. Son of Pharaoh Ptolemy XII of Egypt he succeeded him in Spring of 51 BC as coruler with his older sister Cleopatra VII of Egypt. In October of 50 BC, he was promoted to senior ruler along with her although Pothinus acted as regent for him. In Spring of 48 BC Ptolemy and Pothinus attempted to depose Cleopatra in order for the first to become sole ruler and the second to act as the power behind the throne. They managed to make her flee Alexandria but she soon organized her own army and a civil war began in Egypt. Soon their other sister started to claim the throne as Arsinoe IV, further complicating the situation.

At this point defeated Roman general Pompey came to Egypt seeking refuge from his pursuing rival Julius Caesar. Initially Ptolemy and Pothinus pretended to have accepted his request but on September 29, 48 BCE, Pothinus himself murdered the general in hopes of winning favor with Caesar when the victorious general arrived. When Caesar did arrive he was presented with the head of his deceased rival and former ally but reportedly instead of being pleased reacted with disgust and ordered that Pompey's body be located and given a proper Roman funeral. Cleopatra proved more successful in winning Caesar's favor and became his lover. Caesar arranged the execution of Pothinus and the official return to the throne of Cleopatra, though she had never officially abdicated, and her marriage to Ptolemy.

Still determined to depose Cleopatra, Ptolemy allied himself with Arsinoe IV. Jointly they organized the factions of the army loyal to them against those loyal to Cleopatra and the relatively small part of his army that had accompanied Caesar to Egypt. The battle between the warring factions occurred in midDecember of 48 BCE inside Alexandria itself, which suffered serious damage, including (according to some sources) the burning of some of the buildings which comprised the Library of Alexandria. The arrival of Roman reinforcements from Pergamum offered the victory to Caesar and Cleopatra, forcing Ptolemy and Arsinoe to flee the city. Ptolemy reportedly drowned on January 13, 47 BCE while attempting to cross the Nile. Whether he was attempting to further flee or heading towards negotiations remains uncertain from sources of the time. Cleopatra remained the unchallenged ruler of Egypt although she named their younger brother Ptolemy XIV of Egypt her new coruler. Arsinoe IV (c. ...
