Cleopatra: Egypt"s Last and Greatest Queen

Author(s): Susan Blackaby

Biographies

Cleopatra is one of history's most fascinating figures. An air of mystery surrounds her, as a record of her reign as queen of Egypt does not exist, and her story must be pieced together from artifacts and historical writings. This biography tells that story, beginning with the Ptolemy Dynasty into which she was born, its traditions and infighting, how she ascended to and maintained her place on, the throne, her relationships with both Caesar and Mark Antony and the political repercussions of these affairs within the Roman Empire and Egypt, and, her death in Alexandria. Love, power, and political advantage are intertwined in the story of this powerful queen.
