Alexander Helios (40 BCE – c. late 1st century BCE) was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty, the second oldest son of Cleopatra VII (69 BCE – 30 BCE) and the twin brother of Cleopatra Selene II (40 BCE – 5 BCE). He spent the majority of his life in Alexandria, not meeting his father Mark Antony (83 BCE – 30 BCE) until he was three years old. In 34 BCE, Alexander Helios was proclaimed king of Armenia, Media, and Parthia, although his young age made him a king in name only. Alexander Helios' future took a turn after a war broke out between his parents and Octavian (the future Roman Emperor Augustus, r. 27 BCE - 14 CE) in 32 BCE. After Octavian's conquest of Egypt and the subsequent suicide of Antony and Cleopatra, Alexander Helios, his twin Cleopatra Selene II, and their younger brother Ptolemy Philadelphus were taken back to Rome. It is unknown what became of Alexander Helios after this point, but death by illness is likely. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • (Article by Arienne King || Photo by Sailko). #egypt #history #egyptian #cleopatra #markantony #historygram #alexandria #ancientegypt #alexanderhelios #ancient #ancienthistory #interesting #egyptianhistory #octavian #ancienthistoryencyclopedia
The Pyramid of Cheops is huge! It's unbelievable how the ancient Egytpians could build it more than 4.500 years ago!🇪🇬 . . . #egypt #egyptianculture #pyramids #pyramidsofgiza #pyramidofcheops #giza #gizeh #sphinx #sphinxcat #ancientegypt #sevenancientwonders #wheniwasyoung #worldwonder #traveladdict #travelphotography #travelblogger #traveltheworld #exploringtheglobe #neverstopexploring #history #memories #wanderlust #discovertheworld #egyptianhistory #egypt #wheniwasyoung #worldwonder #history #gizeh #discovertheworld #traveladdict #traveltheworld #ancientegypt #travelphotography #pyramids #egyptianhistory #pyramidsofgiza #sphinx #sevenancientwonders #memories #pyramidofcheops #egyptianculture #travelblogger #giza #neverstopexploring #wanderlust #sphinxcat #exploringtheglobe
📰 After almost 30 years of planning and construction, the Sohag National Museum in Upper Egypt is about to open to the public! The regional museum contains almost a thousand objects on display that were excavated at 60 archaeological sites in the area. President Sisi is set to open the museum this week.

Celebrating the day I was removed from my mother's uterus #csectionbaby #birthdaygirl 🎉🎈Got to enjoy seeing some of the bird collection at the ROM today! It's crazy to be able to hold specimens of bird species that no longer exist (ex. Passenger pigeon, Carolina parakeet, Ivory-billed woodpecker, Bachman's Warbler etc.) ...All birds that have gone extinct as a result of humans (either hunted to extinction or from habitat loss). As a bonus, we got to learn a bit about the palaeontology department and briefly visit the entomology department, for moths of course (thanks again @peckasaur )! Afterwards I was able to face my fears and visit the ROM's Spider exhibit (I'm sorry but arachnids are frightening). Then we got to explore the museum a bit before it closed (which obviously means visiting the mineral and the Egyptian sections)! Thank you for an amazing birthday @brendan6744 😘 . • • • • • #birthday #birthdayfun #rom #museums #royalontariomuseum #mybirthday #happybirthdaytome #museum #collection #romspiders #egypt #egyptian #egyptianexhibit #egyptianhistory #extinctspecies #extinction #ancientegypt #history #explore #adventure #iphone #ontario #exploreontario #canada #egypt #romspiders #birthday #history #extinction #birthdaygirl #egyptianexhibit #ancientegypt #rom #museum #egyptianhistory #collection #egyptian #happybirthdaytome #mybirthday #explore #extinctspecies #exploreontario #royalontariomuseum #adventure #canada #museums #birthdayfun #iphone #csectionbaby #ontario
Hatshepsut has an interesting mix of iconographic styles throughout her life. Beginning as wife to the Pharaoh Thutmose II she continued through stylistic evolutions to represent herself as a fully fledged male pharaoh. Here we see her depicted as pharaoh but with still distinct "feminine" qualities. This statue is from the middle of her reign in the 18th Dynasty and can be seen on view in Gallery 115 #themetropolitanmuseumofart #themet #femalepower #hatshepsut #egypt #egyptianhistory #femalepower #egypt #themet #hatshepsut #themetropolitanmuseumofart #egyptianhistory
