Recollections of his cruelties and vices along with his humiliating defeat caused him to be greatly detested.  The Egyptian queen Cleopatra II set up an army for Demetrius, hoping to engage him in her civil wars against her brother king Ptolemy VIII, but this only added to his grief. The troops soon deserted, and king Ptolemy VIII reacted by setting up yet another usurper, a man named Alexander II Zabinas against Demetrius. In 126 BC, Demetrius was defeated in a battle at Damascus.  He fled to Ptolemais but his wife Cleopatra Thea closed the gates against him.He was only around fourteen at his coronation, and the real power was in the hands of others. He was succeeded by his queen Cleopatra Thea in co-regency with two of their sons, Seleucus V Philometor and Antiochus VIII Grypus.
