Hi. This isnt a cryptic clue...if you Google Tristan you will see that his partner was Isolde and a ruler of Egypt...

Hi Chrisg. I feel you are a bit brusque with Kitty Kat,who is new to cryptic puzzles.
The cryptic part is as follows:
is = IS
former= OLD
leader of Egypt=E
Hope this is helpful to you Kitty Kat.
