Abstract: Without its dominant queens, the Ptolemaic dynasty would have been less significant and probably much more short-lived. Very often, only the royal wives, sisters, and daughters retained the dynastic power and secured its continued existence, which was reflected in textual and visual sources. This article discusses especially Arsinoe II and Berenike II, their status and the royal ideology. The question is raised how much Egyptian traditions and conventions were influenced by intercultural reflections.
Keywords: Ptolemaic queens; ancient Egypt; Arsinoe II; Berenike II; royal ideology
