Summary
A famous femme fatale tells all in this memoir of her reign as Cleopatra VII, queen of Egypt. Yes, it is true, she did have herself smuggled, wrapped in a rug to Julius Caesar's bedroom, and was pleasantly surprised. As for Marc Antony, a gorgeous man. From her earliest memories, to her final days as she prepares to commit suicide by snake bite. By the author of The Autobiography of Henry VIII
Summary
This detailed portrait of ancient Egyptian and Roman life during the time of Cleopatra and Julius Caesar is narrated by the great Queen herself. In a poignant flashback, Cleopatra reveals the complicated political and romantic intrigues surrounding her life and reign. From the elegant and sophisticated city of Alexandria to the graphic brutality of the Roman Coliseum, Cleopatra's story captures the human tragedies played out against the colorful pageant of history. Readers may also enjoy the densely written, elegant historical novels of Colleen McCullough (her Rome series), Michael Ennis, and Pauline Gedge. (Description by: Becky Townsend) --
