The Queen Who Challenged Rome and Conquered Eternity

Alberto Angela, Trans. Katherine Gregor

During the 14-year period following the assassination of Julius Caesar, Cleopatra’s political intrigue and personal charm were instrumental in shaping the Roman Empire’s future. In this biography of the last queen of Egypt, one of Italy’s best-known cultural figures uses a vivid narrative style to recreate ancient Rome and Alexandria, to imagine the protagonists’ state of mind, and to examine the accuracy of our image of Cleopatra.
