Dynasty Notes

The Second Persian period is marked b powerful leaders from Persia and from Greece -- most notable Alexander the Great. The Macedonian kings (Alexander the Great, his brother, and his son) never resided in Egypt and ruled instead from Babylon, the capital of the Macedonian empire. Egypt was ruled directly by a satrap.

Eventually, the satrap of Egypt, Ptolemy, declared himself king, which marked the final dynasty of Egyptian rule.
