A life of passion, intrigue, and betrayal
While Cleopatra is one of the most famous figures in history, the legendary Egyptian queen remains, in many ways, an enigma. In this mesmerizing history, Alberto Angela offers a fresh portrait of this extraordinary ruler, revealing a strikingly modern woman born in an ancient era and skilled in the art of diplomacy and war, who would conquer the heart of a general—Marc Antony—and Rome itself.
Cleopatra focuses on a twenty-year period in Roman history, beginning with the assassination of Julius Caesar and ending with the suicides of Antony and Cleopatra. Angela transports us to the chaotic streets of the capital of the ancient world, the exotic port of Alexandria in Egypt, and to the bloody battlefields where an empire was won and lost.
