The Life and Tragedy of Queen Cleopatra VII

Of all the women who have ruled Egypt during the glorious thousands of years of the Egyptian civilisation, the most famous was undoubtedly Cleopatra. Born to the Ptolemy Pharaoh Auletes, Cleopatra became co-regent with her father and later with her brothers. She ruled Egypt with a strong will and through her much talked about beauty and wit, captured the hearts of two of the most famous Romans of all times - Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. This book traces her life from the beach lined shores of Alexandria to the power seat of the world - Rome. Excerpt
With her hair in shambles, her body not bathed, and her eyes not painted, Cleopatra headed into the room where the dead Pharaoh was kept in state. The priests were chanting a low tone song for Osiris to receive their dead king. The fragrance of embalming oils greeted her nose as she walked in. Her eyes betrayed no sadness though her lips trembled as she approached the man who had been a constant conflict in her mind. She remembered his love and his hatred - Little did she know that she resembled him more than any of her siblings in both love and ruthlessness. His cozy lap and his loving kisses, the execution of her sister Berenice, his genuine smile of pride when he informed her of his decision to make her the heir and the old worried face which denied her right to the throne – everything flashed in her mind’s eye. She bent to kiss his forehead and she whispered, “I loved you well father, and would have loved you more if you had left my Egypt to me.”
