At once daring, clever, smart, rich, determined and rash, Cleopatra is one of history's most fascinating figures. Here, children will find out all about: the Ptolemy Dynasty into which she was born, its traditions and infighting; the role of women in ancient Egypt; 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 and much more, all beautifully illustrated.
