The story of the most notorious woman in history: Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt

"Men have called me many things in my life. Whore, wife, savior, queen, goddess, wanton, betrayer, ally, murderer, sister, daughter, lover, friend."

The last ruler of an ancient people, Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt grew up in the dangerous court of Alexandria, where inheritance of power may rest in a drop of poison, or a knife between the shoulder blades. Loving daughter to her father, forced into marriage with her brother...Cleopatra would use her wiles and wits to become the sole ruler of Egypt and the lover of the two most powerful men of Rome; Caesar and Marc Antony. 
Through her struggles to survive and retain her power, she would become one of the most famous and iconic women of history...but the real woman would become as cloaked in mystery as her name was famous...here, is her story, from her own mouth. 

Cleopatra: The Last Queen

"The truth is not within their ink. 

The truth is written in my heart, and may be read by the Gods alone."
