Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ladice or Ladice of Cyrene was a Libyan Greek woman, who was a Greek Cyrenaean Princess and was a member of The Battiads Dynasty. She was the daughter of the fifth Greek Cyrenaean King Battus III and Greek Cyrenaean Queen Pheretima. Her brother would be the future sixth Greek Cyrenaean King Arcesilaus III. Although her maternal grandparents are unknown, her paternal grandparents were the fourth Greek Cyrenaean King Arcesilaus II and Greek Cyrenaean Queen Eryxo. Although her father was Battus III, Herodotus states from other accounts her father could have been Arcesilaus II or Critobulus, one of the leading Greek Cyrenaean citizens. She was born and raised in Cyrene. After 548 BC, she married the second last native Egyptian Pharaoh Amasis II as his fourth wife. Before her marriage with Amasis took place, her father made an alliance with the Pharaoh to protect Cyrenaica from the local Libyan population and its aristocracy.show more
