He was the son of Ptolemy VIII and Cleopatra III of Egypt. In 110 BC he became King with his mother as co-regent, after his mother had deposed his brother Ptolemy IX. However, in 109 BC he was deposed by Ptolemy IX. In 107 BC he became King again, and again with his mother as co-regent. In 101 BC he had his mother killed, and ruled either alone or with his niece/wife, Berenice III.

When he died, Ptolemy IX regained the throne. When Ptolemy IX died, Ptolemy X's wife Berenice III took over the throne for six months.
