Caesar took Cleopatra back to Rome with him. She left back for Egypt when Caesar was assassinated because he had too much power. Statue of
Julius Caesar Cleopatra Cleopatra's older sisters envied her because she was smart and brave for a girl her age. These are The image below is Julius Caesar, one of Cleopatra's husbands By: National Geographic Antony was one of the rulers of Rome, along with Gaius Octavian (later called Augustus) and Marcus Aemilius Lepidus. two of Cleopatra's sisters. Cleopatra never forgot her sisters' jealousy and learned to look after herself. Cleopatra soon discovered one of her sisters' plans to have her food poisoned. Luckily, she didn't eat the poisoned food because she found out just in time. After her sister's failed attempt to poison her, Cleopatra ordered one of her servants to taste her food to check if it was poisoned. Cleopatra arrived in Tarsus in a magnificent, big barge. When she and Marc Antony met each other, they fell in love. In 32 B.C., Octavian went to war against Antony and Cleopatra. In 31 B.C., forces of Antony and Cleopatra lost the Battle of Actium off the west coast of Greece. The couple returned to Alexandria. In 49 BC, when Ptolemy XIII's guardians drove Cleopatra from the throne to achieve power, Cleopatra fled to Rome hoping that the Romans would help. Julius Caesar had arrived in Egypt to win the Roman throne by chasing his enemy Pompey. He stayed in the castle with Ptolemy XIII. Cleopatra was determined to know about any deals that were made in her absence. Cleopatra got a servant to send a carpet to Caesar as a gift and rolled herself up in the carpet. They fell in love when they saw each other. Ptolemy XIII fled and drowned in the Nile River soon after. In 47 BC, Cleopatra gave birth to a boy, Ptolemy Caesar, also known as Caesarian, which means "little Caesar". The image below is Marc Antony,
one of Cleopatra's husbands. Some time later, after Octavian reached Cleopatra, he spread a report that she had committed suicide. Antony heard the report and stabbed himself out of grief. Before he died, Antony learned that Cleopatra was alive. His followers carried him to her, and he died in her arms. Images of Cleopatra's father and brothers Cleopatra had two husbands--Julius Caesar and Marc Antony. They were both great rulers of Rome. Cleopatra was Greek, and was part of the Ptomely Dynasty. Her full name was Cleopatra VII, because she was the seventh girl in her family to be named Cleopatra. She also married a couple of her brothers (unwillingly), but only because she couldn't rule Egypt alone. This is a picture of what Cleopatra might have looked like She was known for her beauty, but scholars disagree on what she looked like. About Cleopatra However, they do agree that she was intelligent, witty, smart, and charming. This is probably the reason her father picked her as the next ruler of Egypt.Cleopatra was also a very ambitious woman. As a young child she often asked questions to her tutor and if her tutor couldn't answer her, she would go to the library and look for the answer in books. Cleopatra VII was one of Egypt's greatest pharaohs, and one of the most well known woman leaders. In 52 BC, Cleopatra became a co-ruler with her father, Ptolemy XII. When her father died in 51 BC, 18-year-old Cleopatra became queen, and married Ptolemy XIII, her 10-year-old brother. (They always married their own siblings so that only people born into the royal family could rule.) Marc Antony She has a fascinating and interesting life story. No one knows for sure who Cleopatra's mother is, but she was probably her dad's sister (Cleopatra V Tryphaena) because in her family, they often married their own brothers and sisters. Her father's name was Ptolemy XII. Cleopatra Egyptian Hieroglyphics Battle of Actium Similarities and Differences VENN DIAGRAM Image of Caesarian Cartoon of Antony and Cleopatra
holding hands Cleopatra wanted her son Caesarian to rule Rome. Octavian, one of Romes co-rulers, thought that Cleopatra was greedy and ambitious. Octavian thought that Cleopatra had turned Antony into a helpless puppet and a few years after Cleopatra and Antony went to Alexandria, he came after them. Now many people see Cleopatra the way Octavian saw her, but she was still an amazing leader. Cleopatra and Octavian Octavian After Antony's death, Cleopatra was captured by Octavian. She tried to make peace with him but failed. Cleopatra felt that her only choice was to kill herself. In despair she placed an asp (a very poisonous snake) on her arm. It bit her and she died. The Romans murdered Caesarian, thinking he would be the heir to the roman throne. Cleopatra and Caesarian's deaths ended the dynasty of Ptolemies. Egypt now belonged to Rome. Cleopatra would rather die than let that happen. Cleopatra's Death An asp, like the one that bit Cleopatra She believed that he would humiliate her in front of Rome. She was the last Pharaoh of Egypt. The End of the Ptomelic Dynasty Stone Carving of
Cleopatra VII Cleopatra's Crown Bibliography The image below shows Cleopatra stepping out of the rug she sent to Caesar Trouble
in the Family If the servant was still alive and healthy after eating, she knew that the food was safe to eat. Driven Out Cleopatra's 10-year-old brother wasn't all that smart, but his advisers were. A little while after she became queen, Cleopatra was driven out by Ptolemy XIII's advisers and forced to flee the throne. It would stay that way until Julius Caesar came to Egypt, fell in love with Cleopatra, and helped her become pharaoh again. His advisers were always plotting to get her off the throne, so Ptolemy XIII could be the only ruler of Egypt. A cartoon of Cleopatra and one of her husbands Cleopatra had two brothers named Ptolemy--Ptolemy XIII and Ptolemy XIV. She married Ptolemy XIII, and after he died, she married Ptolemy XIV. After Caesar beat Ptolemy XIII's forces at the Battle of the Nile, he restored Cleopatra to the throne. They had three children together, including the twins Cleopatra Selene and Alexander Helios.
