Aristocrates II was the 23rd and last King of Arcadia.

Aristocrates was the son of King Iketas and grandson of Aristocrates I. He is known in history chiefly for his role in the Second Messinian War: At first he sided with Aristomenes and the Messeneans however he betrayed them to the Spartans after being bribed. Upon his return to Arcadia, he was stoned to death, for his treachery, by his own people who then abolished the monarchy.
