In about 26 BC she married Juba II of Numidia, and as a wedding present Augustus Caesar made Cleopatra Selene queen of Mauretania in her own right. The couple ruled as king and queen of Numidia until the political situation grew too uncomfortable for them, and then they moved to Mauretania.
They had at least two children: Ptolemy of Mauretania (1 B.C. - 40 A.D.) and Drusilla of Mauretania.(b. 5 A.D.); there may also have been a daughter named Cleopatra. Xenobia of Palmyra traced her descent from them.
