The wager between Cleopatra and Antony is historic and still conversed about today. Caesar and Cleopatra continued their relationship although he was often travelling on military campaigns. Egypt had won but Octavian was mad and wanted his revenge.
Mark Antony controlled the eastern part of the Roman Republic. If one character could stand out in Egyptian history, none other would be so worthy as Cleopatra would.
Cleopatra is also sometimes seen as a misunderstood woman, someone who was never given a fair opportunity to be accepted as the wife of Marc Antony nor the mother of Caesar's child Schiff describes how Cleopatra used the power of imagery for her first official meeting with Mark Antony at his base in the town of Tarsus.
The most important woman in this book is Penelope, mainly because of her guile and intelligence.
For example, Cleopatra made herself into a representation of the goddess Isis. Within the first page of Shakespeare's "Antony and Cleopatra", the Roman's narrow perspective of Cleopatra is presented to the audience.
This woman, whom I am referring to happens to be my grandmother. Egyptians thought she was the goddess of love and worshiped her when she became queen.
Today we tell about the life of one of the most famous and powerful women in history.
