Abstract: By investigating the evidence concerning Kleopatra’s relations with the Diadochoi anew, I hope to show that judgements underestimate Kleopatra’s importance. The question is relevant to our understanding of the early development of the Hellenistic monarchies, as the presumed lack of interest of the Diadochoi in Alexander’s sister is one element often used to argue that they did not aim at continuing the Argead dynasty but rather wanted to install personal monarchies.
