 Lysimachus, once the bodyguard of Alexander the Great, briefly unified Thrace after Alexander's death,  ruling the kingdom for forty-two years. His gold and silver coins as King bear the portrait of Alexander as Zeus Ammon.

In 281 bc Lysimachus, attacked by Seleukos, died fighting at the battle of Korupedion. His kingdom perished with him.

Before and after Lysimachus, Thrace was variably divided between its powerful neighbors and minor kings who controlled small parts of Thrace. This page also includes these dynasts.

At the end of the 1st century bc Thrace was absorbed into the Roman Empire, ending dynastic issues.
