Ptolemy XV, sometimes referred to as "Ptolemy Caesar", most commonly known by his nickname Caesarion, was born in Egypt in 47 BC and was the son of Julius Caesar. He spent two of his early years, from 46–44 BC, in Rome, where he and his mother were Caesar's guests. Cleopatra VII hoped that her son would eventually succeed his father as the head of the Roman Republic as well as Egypt. He was placed under protective custody of Octavian Augustus five years ago.


It is said that Octavian has been had this young rival killed because of his royal blood. Some believe the gods of Egypt will strike down any that kill one of their chosen.
