Demetrius the Fair or surnamed The Handsome, also known in modern ancient historical sources as Demetrius of Cyrene, was a Hellenistic king of Cyrene. Demetrius was of Greek Macedonian descent. He was surnamed The Fair, because he was an attractive man. He was born and raised in Macedonia. Demetrius was named after his father and was the youngest of the children of King Demetrius I of Macedon and his wife, Ptolemais. Demetrius I married Ptolemais as his fifth wife around 287 BC/286 BC in Miletus, while this was Ptolemais' first marriage. Demetrius was the only child born into the marriage as in 283 BC his father had died. From his father's previous marriages, Demetrius had various paternal half siblings, who included king Antigonus II Gonatas, princess and later queen of the Seleucid Empire Stratonice of Syria.
