Taking as its subject the most famous queen in history, this biography reveals the troubled ties, political upheaval and the charismatic personality of the ruler of Ancient Egypt. Famously romantically involved with two Roman leaders, Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony, her story has long passed into a legend. Her personal life led to war between two great countries, and finally to her own death. Fleeing Egypt in 31BC, pursued by Romans, Antony and Cleopatra both committed suicide, and together became one of the world's enduring love stories. The life and times of this remarkable and powerful woman make a fascinating tale.
