More than two millennia after her death, Cleopatra is still one of the most famous figures in history, the Egyptian queen remains, in many ways, an enigma. Offering a fresh and dynamic portrait of this extraordinary ruler, Alberto Angela finds Cleopatra to be a strikingly modern woman, skilled in the art of diplomacy and war, who would conquer the heart of a general—Marc Antony—and Rome itself. Focusing on a tumultuous 20-year period, Angela transports us to the chaotic streets of ancient Rome, the exotic port of Alexandria in Egypt, and the bloody battlefields where an empire was won and lost.
